Right now our teen and pre-teen girls are learning to become women
We’re doing everything we can to help our girls grow into strong, independent and brave young women. That means teaching them practical skills like how to cook, iron their clothes and manage their money. As well as helping them to develop personal qualities like compassion, generosity and taking responsibility for their actions. And encouraging them to take pride in their appearance.
Like most girls, our teens and pre-teens love experimenting with make up and hairstyles … keeping their nails trimmed and shaped … learning about skin care and personal hygiene … and looking after their teeth with regular brushing and flossing. It’s important because knowing that you’re looking your best leads to self confidence. And that goes for the boys too!
Which means that we get through thousands of rands worth of toiletries and personal care items every month. Soap, toothpaste, deodorant, shampoo, body lotion, lip balm and sponges – it all adds up. Just buying one roll-on for each of our teens costs over R700! And that’s for the cheapest brands.
But we can’t scrimp on personal care items. We can only appeal to kind and generous people like you to help us meet the bills. Please will you make a special donation now, during Women’s Month, to ensure our girls (and boys) have everything they need to take real pride in their appearance.
Establishing good personal hygiene habits now is crucial to the children’s future wellbeing. Your gift of R195 covers a basic toiletry pack of soap, toothpaste, roll-on, body lotion, shampoo and conditioner. If you can give R295, we can add a new sponge, nail file and hair brush. Or a packet of razors and some shaving cream for a teenage boy.
Any amount you can give today makes a difference and is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for helping us raise children who understand the importance of good hygiene and self care.
