To recap, our Sanitary Supplies GoodBag™ initiative was developed in response to high rates of absenteeism at Ocean View Secondary School in the townships outside Cape Town, South Africa. We learned that high school girls were missing days of school each month because they lacked access to, or means to buy, sanitary supplies. Then, between GoodStripe’s go-getter attitude and a partnership with Johnson & Johnson of South Africa, we supplied packs of sanitary supplies to each of the school’s 573 female students once a month from October through December.
And the best part is— it works! The GoodBag™ model is now proven to have a concrete, measurable effect on acute problems facing communities in need. Once our evaluation of the Sanitary Supplies GoodBag™ initiative is complete, we’ll share the results!
