Building Confidence

Posted: 1 Oct 2018

The Pandula Trust showed their support to the Pebble Foundation’s drive to create more awareness of girl-child empowerment during a special function at the Tutaleni High School last week. One of the initiatives of this foundation is to restore dignity and build the confidence of girls by providing sanitary pads. According to Bridget Dundee, founder of the Pebble Foundation, women have always been expected to keep quite and know their place.

“The world is changing, and girls need to be able to speak up when required. Giving the girls sanitary pads goes a long way in building confidence. To many sanitary pads are cheap and easy to obtain. Yet you will be shocked to learn that many girls do not have access to these basic hygiene products. Menstruation is not a choice. As a girl you are born with it, so we believe handing out sanitary pads should be a human right,” she said to an assemble of school girls from the Tutaleni High School and the Duinesig Private High School. Dundee also revealed that through generous sponsorships since March this year the foundation had amassed enough hygiene products to supply to all the schools in the region for the next three months.

The Pandula Trust provided some N$2500 worth of sanitary pads to the cause. The day also included choir performance by the Duinesig School Choir and a motivational message by pop artist Ann Singer.
