Be Confident. Be You. Be Inspirational
The BU campaign provides care packs as well as guidance to young girls about issues such as self-confidence, self-care and respecting their bodies.
Thirty girls from Mvezo will be part of the SA programme for 12 months.
The launch programme included a session with a psychologist about self esteem and realising their worth and potential. There were also educational sessions about understanding physical changes, how to use the reusable pads, and a self-care session which addressed hygiene and care as well as lighter topics like how to do a manicure.
The programme will be assessed each quarter to ensure that kits remain relevant to needs.
