Susters 4 Life started when four sisters got together with the intention to accomplish great things. They started community projects in Worcester and Lainsburg with the aim of mentoring and supporting underprivileged women. Now an established NGO, Susters 4 Life has helped countless women rise above their circumstances and improve their lives.
A woman has her period every 21 - 35 days. For lower income families this can be a significant financial burden each month. Our reusable pads provide the ideal solution to this problem as each pad can be used for years to come. This not only eliminates the financial cost for families, but is also kinder to the environment.
When you empower someone, you acknowledge what they can give, not what they can receive. We aim to empower women within our organisation through our reusable pad and locally-made soap initiatives. Our pads and soap are all made by women in our trauma counselling programme, who were previously unemployed. The valuable sewing and soap-making skills they have acquired enable them to generate their own income and to play a role in the upliftment of rural communities. To learn more about what we do,
Menstruation Hygiene Day is observed around the globe on 28 May each year. This day exists to raise awareness about menstrual hygiene and promote a world where women are not restricted by their periods. From 28 - 31 May, Susters 4 Life and Hygiene For Women will distribute sanitary pads, cloth face masks and soap around the Western Cape. Please consider supporting our cause so that we can reach all rural areas in which women lack the resources for proper menstrual hygiene.
