Acacia Private School joins the red walk for charity

Acacia Schools' teacher Caroline Armstrong, youngster Washu Morare and principal Fiona Wood attended the 5km Red Walk.

Around 3.7 million girls, in South Africa alone, may be missing school each month because of lack of sanitary towels.

This is according to Africa Check, a non-profit, non-partisan fact-checking group established in June 2012 with the aim of improving news gathering in Africa.

So on 26 August, hundreds of people attended the first annual 5km Red Walk held at the Johannesburg Zoo.

The aim of the event was to raise funds to assist eight schools across the country with three years worth of sanitary towels.

Everyone who signed up for the event had to bring a pack of sanitary towels to donate.

Acacia Schools’ teachers and children participated in the event in their numbers, showing support for such a good cause.

The school is invested in community projects to widen their children’s horizons.
