Author and award-winning musician Top Cheri has called on all-female artists, fashion designers and nail technicians to join in in the quest to providing school girls with sanitary towels.
In a tweet shared recently, the musician suggests monthly shows to raise funds that will buy sanitary items for girls in rural areas.“It’s terrible what these little girls are going through… every month we do a show and the entrance fee is sanitary pads,” read the tweet.
Further, she asked fashion designers to make simple outfits that can be traded for a specific amount of pads. Meanwhile, nail technicians can aboard the initiative by having specials for those who offer sanitary pads.Soccer players Zenatha Coleman and Annouscka Kordom, as well as popstar Khadijah, are some of those who indicated their interest in the initiative.
Top Cheri recently embarked on an initiative of delivering sanitary pads to school going girls in all regions across Namibia. The initiative, according to her, is to keep the girl child in school as is in partnership with Lilets and Shoprite.
