Silverleaf Primary School – Pad Run

The Hollywood Foundation is constantly transforming lives through meaningful campaigns and initiatives. One of these initiatives includes a collaboration with The Pad Run and Flutter By LKG, regarding the provision of sanitary pads to organisations that prioritise the needs of vulnerable and disadvantaged girls and women.

The Hollywood Foundation Team from the Western Cape, alongside the Team from Flutter By LKG, the Team from The Pad Run, and music personality, SPHEctacula, visited Silverleaf Primary School on 1 March 2022, in an effort to supply the school with sufficient sanitary pads for girls. The school has stated that many of the girls stay away from school, due to lack of sanitary towels and pads. The Hollywood Foundation believes that every girl should have a right to attend school, and not be hindered by the challenges that they face during menstruation. It was a privilege to hand over the sanitary pads to this school, which also offers counselling services for girls to address their social problems.

NS Vumazonke, the Principal for Silverleaf Primary School, welcomed the contribution of sanitary pads with open arms, and said that it will help to greatly reduce the levels of absenteeism for girls in the school.
