Every year, the Active Civic Teaching Office (ACT) at the University of the Free State runs the Big Give campaign to raise food, money to buy food, and other forms of assistance for needy students. This year is no different. ACT’s big project is raising money for sanitary pads for students on all three campuses. The project will run throughout Women’s Month, August 2021. Providing menstrual hygiene products to female students empower them to continue their studies in comfort.

Karen Scheepers, Assistant Director: Kovsie Support Services, said: “This year, one of the challenges that have been highlighted is the lack of sanitary wear for students. Therefore, we focus our Big Give campaign this year on addressing this challenge that students are experiencing.”
Be part of the Big Give campaign by donating sanitary pads or money towards this initiative. Donation boxes are ready for donations at all the entrance gates of all three campuses. Your donation will go a long way in helping a deserving student.
