NMB speaker to launch project to restore confidence among girl learners

Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality Council Speaker, Buyelwa Mafaya, will on Friday launch a project to assist financially needy girl learners in the Bay.

The project will be launched at Thembelihle High School in New Brighton, Port Elizabeth.

According to the Nelson Mandela Bay Municipality spokesperson, Mthubanzi Mniki, during the launch, the Speaker is expected to do motivational talk to pupils and handover sanitary towels and other personal items.

"The reason for the programme is to restore confidence in all girls at school especially those who lack financial resources to purchase personal needs like sanitary towels, toiletries and underwears," he described.

"The speaker's office has many programmes in stored which she aims to initiate."

Mniki said that all these programmes involve partnerships with the private sector and civil society organisations.
