A sanitary pad vending machine project has been launched in Cape Town.
The event took place at the School of Hope in Observatory yesterday.
The project is the brainchild of the Menstruation Foundation and O Graceland, a Cape Town Girls’ Home.
The sanitary pad vending machine project is the first of its kind on the African continent.
O Graceland founder Philani Zama says the aim is to reach schools and sports hubs to help girls across the country.
He explained the vending machines will be restocked monthly with the help of sponsors.
