Further details

One in 10 school-age girls in Africa miss class during menstruation or drop of school completely at puberty because of a lack of sanitary products and toilet facilities and negative social stigma.

Motivated by this situation, Mimi Anderson from the United Kingdom and Samantha Gash from Australia will promote awareness of this issues and raise funds for the start-up of a social enterprise business to help keep girls in school. The business will employ women to make and distribute low-cost feminine hygiene products for the Namahadi Community in the Free State Province of South Africa.

The screening of Desert Runners is the first official fundraising event with 100 per cent of ticket sales going towards the social enterprise business.
