As part of their corporate social responsible South Western Districts Cricket supported a women’s and girls initiative during August 2019.
Members of the Board, Associate bodies, affiliated clubs, staff members and donors donated to this project.
The sanitary pads were handed over to the schools on August, 27. The schools that benefited were St. Blaize Primary, Sao Bras Primary, Diaz Primary and Isalathiso Primary.
The respective headmasters eluded that this was a very good initiative and that there is a problem with this in schools, and that girls who can’t afford this necessity normally stay at home for this period of the month.
