Masakhane combined school, located in Mpumalanga hosts 161 school girls between the ages of 9-15 years (Grade 4 – 9)
Topics we address in our training:
Safe and consensual sex
During the training, we give each girl an Elle Cup pack and teach them how to use it (even if they have not reached menarche).
It is important to start addressing these topics prior to menstrual age to ensure the girls are equipped and understand the function of a menstrual period.
This is necessary to continue to process of destigmatisation around menstruation.
