Stanbic Bank Donates Sanitary Ware To Students

BY STAFF REPORTER

STANBIC Bank Zimbabwe yesterday donated reusable sanitary pads to 775 primary and secondary school girls worth $ 1.5 million to commemorate the International Women’s month.

The Standard Bank Group subsidiary partnered Talia Network – an organisation that represents the interests of the girl child and donated sanitary wear to girls from Musara Primary and Secondary Schools in Glendale, Harare, Pote Secondary School in Domboshava and Mukombami High School near Bhora Growth Point.

Each girl received a pack with reusable pads and undergarments.

Stanbic Bank Marketing Manager for Sponsorships and Events Lucy Dlodlo said Stanbic Bank is committed to the wellbeing of the girl child.

 “As a financial services institution we are committed to supporting the community we operate in, and the underprivileged girl child and her needs are among our top priority. We understand the challenges faced by girls in terms of securing or sourcing sanitary wear and once again we partnered Talia Network to make this gesture for the girls,” said Dlodlo.

She said Stanbic Bank has over the years supported school girls especially during women’s month through donation of sanitary pads, adding this is going to be an annual activity.

In 2018, Stanbic Bank female employees raised over 900 packets of disposable pads and complemented by 2 500 packets of non-disposable sanitary napkins purchased by the bank for disadvantaged girls living in rural areas.
