Sue barnes created subz

Subz Pants and Pads were created to reduce the rate of absenteeism and school drop outs among young girls.

Subz Pads are eco-friendly, re-usable sanitary pads which clip onto ladies underwear and do not need to be disposed of. They are simply washed and dried in the privacy of the home and re-used the next day.

Subz Pantz and Pads are packaged in Subz Packs consisting of 3 pieces of underwear with clip on studs, 9 re-usable sanitary pads and an educational booklet. The pack will last the young lady for 5 years, as long as she only wears the panties whilst menstruating.

Subz Packs are distributed to young girls aged 10-19 years in schools and communities through Project Dignity.

There are 7 000 000 school girls in South Africa who don’t have access to sanitary pads as they cannot afford them. Most girls are from child headed homes where there is no one to talk to and educate them on sexual health.

Through Project Dignity we give the girls their basic education they deserve. Their dignity is kept intact and we empower them to be the best they can. We grow their self-esteem by educating them on their bodies and sexual rights.
