Poverty striken girls living in these areas who cannot afford sanitary products. The economic crisis in Zimbabwe has left many women unable to afford underwear and sanitary products thus threatening their dignity. Many women have substituted sanitary ware with rags or newspapers which has led to various vaginal infections. The 'Dignity Restored' campaign is aimed at restoring these young women's dignity by donating underwear and sanitary products .
As a youth charity we have been working with young girls in Africa for the past 3 years. Our staff and volunteers have experience in delivering sexual and reproductive health education to youth. We have already identified groups of girls in desparate need of sanitary products.
