ProVest through its subsidiary Platchro joined millions of corporations across the country and globe in celebrating centenary of Nelson Mandela on the 18 July. ProVest is committed to participating in the important call of social transformation by giving hope and validation to our communities especially the young, including the girl-child. Keeping the girl-child in school is an initiative that will ensure that female learners realise their aspirations of being leaders of tomorrow. This initiative seeks to enhance their chances of staying in school resulting in improving their lives and those of their families, helping to break the cycle of poverty.
ProVest acknowledges the good work and generosity that other corporations has already done and continues to do towards restoring the dignity and pride of the girl-child in schools around the Steelpoort area through the provision of sanitary towels. ProVest resolved to augment and provide an alternative sanitary product, in the form of a menstrual cup, to learners and making a small contribution in their lives. It is against this background that ProVest spend a day with learners from Kgahlanong Secondary School in Longtill and Mashupje Secondary school in Ga-Pasha celebrating Madiba’s legacy of caring and giving those in need. Learners were taken through educational process, a talk on menstruation matter, empowerment, how to use the cup, remove it, sterilize it. Each learner was then presented with a Princess D Menstrual Cup and compact, a foldable steriliser cup.
The product Princess D Menstrual Cup is an environmentally – friendly, cost effective and sustainable solution for girls and women. It is ultra-soft, made from medical silicone and is reusable for 10 years. It is FDA approved, healthy and hygienic to use.
