Lead SA Youth Hero improving the lives of other teen girls
Avantika Naidoo is a grade 10 learner at Rustenberg Girls' High School.
She realized the importance of girls attending school and decided to put others before herself.
The Western Cape Youth Hero for March, selflessly decided to ask friends and family to donate money or sanitary towels instead of buying her birthday presents.
She made contact with Subz Padz, an organisation that created washable, sustainable sanitary pads and panties which she then purchased and, along with the collected one-use pads, donated to St George's Home for Girls in Wynberg.
She personally delivered the packages and included a personalized message of hope and handmade cupcake for each of the girls.
