ABOUT THE OUTREACH (PERIOD POVERTY)

idle DRIVE 2 UNITE is the brain child of our 16year old ambassador, Tiamara Andrew. It is a charity event run by Blessing Lives NPO 295-038, which is a section 18A - approved organisation with PBO 930080855 status. 

"South Africa is currently facing a critical issue of menstrual hygiene. Many young women and girls cannot access or afford sanitary pads, which has led to absenteeism from school, and even health issues. I am grateful to have the support of our partner, the Department of Education to identify schools from Alexandra Township whom desperately need our support. This year our target is to provide 5829 girls with a one[1] year supply of sanitary pads. Through our vehicle run which creates awareness and donations we aim to meet or exceed this amount hence I encourage you to come out in your numbers and support this great initiative", says Tiamara Andrew
