Brand South Africa and its Play Your Part Ambassador Shamila Ramjawan aka PrincessD will be inspiring and playing her part during International Mandela Day at the Palm Ridge Primary School on Thursday, 18 July 2019 from 11h00 – 13h00. Young girls at the school will be given Menstrual Cups and be educated on menstrual hygiene whilst being encouraged to play their part towards building each other and their community.
Play Your Part Ambassador Shamila Ramjawan is committed to improving the lives of young South African girls whose socio-economic conditions are less than desirable. For Shamila, feminine hygiene needs fall right at the top of this list.
According to Stellenbosch University (SU) Law Clinic, approximately 30% of girls in South Africa miss school due to inadequate access to sanitary products. The menstrual cup has been identified as a sustainable solution for menstruation woes, granting young girls the opportunity to get an education.
As a result, Shamila founded the Princess D Menstrual Cup in 2016 after conducting thorough research. The PrincessD Menstrual Cup is cost-effective, eco-friendly and hygienic, and is currently available in 20 countries and 50 pharmacies in South Africa.
Through her initiative, Shamila has brought relief to thousands of lives having handed out menstrual cups and educating girls in 22 schools in South Africa through corporate funding.
