Imbumba Foundation carries the culture of generosity to Pine Ridge Combined School

Caring4Girls is a menstrual hygiene support programme that provides feminine hygiene, sanitary towel and puberty education support to indigent girls.

The Caring4Girls Activation Programme under Imbumba Foundation invited WITBANK NEWS to witness the sanitary towels distribution that took place on Wednesday, August 31.

This event took place at Pine Ridge Combined School in Klarinet where a total of 653 female learners received sanitary hygiene products at the school.

Founder and CEO of Imbumba Foundation, Richard Mabaso shared his personal and heartfelt message with the learners of the school as to when he started the foundation as well as why it was important for him as a male figure to establish an all-girls sanitary activation programme, “Growing up in a disadvantaged home in Nelspruit, my niece often didn’t have sanitary towels, not only that, but it was also eleven years ago taboo in my society for me as a man to even dare have a conversation about it with my niece, that’s when I started the programme and began asking for donations, not only for her, but for other girls who were in a similar situation.”

Imbumba Foundation is a Non-Profit Organization (NPO) established by innovative social entrepreneur and humanitarian Richard Mabaso, 12 years ago.

The foundation aims to bring about social change and economic upliftment within rural and economically marginalized communities in Southern Africa.

The foundation currently has three flagship programmes and one of the Caring4Girls.

Caring4Girls is a menstrual hygiene support programme that provides feminine hygiene, sanitary towel and puberty education support to indigent girls. Caring4Girls is one of the largest sanitary towel distribution programmes and has supported over 1.5 million girl children across South Africa and neighbouring countries.

Pine Ridge Combined School principal Ms Sharon Phakathi expressed her gratitude to Mr Mabaso and to the Imbumba Foundation for their support and contribution towards changing the life of the girl child, “I would like to thank Imbumba Foundation, the house of the mayor and all the sponsors and stakeholders for this wonderful donation, I hope that you continue your journey ahead to changing the lives of a girl child.”
