In an effort to reduce the school dropout rate among young girls, South Africa’s KwaZulu-Natal province will give out free sanitary pads to girls on their periods. Millions of South Africa’s poorest female students miss school because many of them cannot afford to buy sanitary pads.

3,000 schools in the province will receive the free sanitary pads as a spokesperson said, “We don’t want aunties and other women to use these sanitary pads because they are there to help our female learners and to ensure that they don’t have to miss classes because they cannot afford these pads.”
