MC is open, engaging, and knowledgeable. I took a Langa township tour with MC ... The tour was fantastic and gave me a greater understanding of what it means to live in a township. One tour with MC was not enough.
My 2nd Township Tour with MC and it was as impressive, interesting and amazing as the first . MC is such a personality. This tour really helps to understand the current social situation in SA and it is something you shouldn't miss as a tourist!!!

Donate a sanitary towel to a girl pupil in need

Teenage girls living in poverty can lose up to a fifth of their high school careers through shame when it’s that time of the month.  Our aim is to assist young girls in Langa Township, by restoring dignity and helping ensure, that eventually, no girl misses school this because she’s having her period.
As you probably know, in Africa young girls will often share their sanitary towels with their mothers or other women in the household, which are usually homemade substitutes (usually scrap cloth). Of course they are washed thoroughly between uses, but venereal diseases can be transmitted through sharing in spite of that.
Studies have shown, that most of these underprivileged girls miss school for at least four days each month over their menstruation time. These issues are not talked about in their community, due to embarrassment, lack of understanding and the low priority of such problems in the face of starvation, violence, death, illiteracy and the many struggles of daily life.
You can help prevent this by donating sanitary towels each time you join one of our  tours.  Simply bring along your donation and we’ll collect it from you and distribute donations to local girls in the Langa township.

You Donate, we Distribute! The aim of ProteamSA’s sanitary towel collection is to reduce absenteeism and dropout rates amongst the young girls,  in schools within the Langa township. This will go a long way to assist and increase opportunities for these young girls to complete their education with dignity.
