More about Leading Lady Organization

The Leading Lady organisations was established by Busiswe in 2016, after she saw a great need in assisting young woman with their menstrual cycle. She saw girls trying to use everyday objects to try avoid leakage so that they could go back to school, but this only saw a increase in illness. They started working by going to the local schools and giving health talks to educate them on different kind of diseases around menstrual cycle and what goes with it. They often hold fundraisers to raise funds for pads to hand out to the community but it is almost never enough. They assist 150 girls per month but they are aiming for it to grow to assist more young woman. Majority of girls have to remain at home for the days of their period and this has a very negative affect on their schooling and it it continues will have for their future, By providing them with the told they need to attend school during those days they are helping them stay on top of their work and creating a better future for themselves.
