The Teenage Girls Programme has grown beautifully since it was piloted in 2019 with 50 girls. It’s become a major attraction among young girls and has received some great publicity.
The programme will now be expanding from two ACFS centres to all our centres, thanks to fantastic support from Coca-Cola and Doja-Cat.
This is an exciting development. We have over 6000 teenage girls in ACFS programmes. They face significant pressure and often need extra support to cope. That’s where this programme comes into its own.
“It helped me so much with my schoolwork. Now I can answer questions in my English class,” says Mpumelelo.
Another participant, Amohelang from Pimville, says: “I have better confidence. I always feel good. I’m ready to go out and get the world!”
We would love you to support our young ladies with items like:
Sanitary pads * Non-perishable grooming products * Perfumes * Hair scrunchies * Manicure kits and makeup sets * Weaves * Knitting and sewing kits * Magazines and journals * Art sets * Volley balls, board games and gym mats * Exercise leggings
