The agricultural industry has grown and proven to be one of the sectors that can help develop and sustain our regional economy.

This observation was taken note of by the delegates at the youth in agriculture seminar organized by the office of the Emfuleni Local Municipality’s executive mayor that took place on the 29th August 2013 at Saul Tsotetsi Sports Complex, Zone 14 Sebokeng. The seminar was addressed by the executive mayor of Emfuleni, Clr Nomthandazo Hlongwane and MMC of LED Khulu Malindi.

Young girl learners from Lekoa Shandu High School in Sharpeville were beneficiaries of the sanitary towels from the executive mayor, Clr. Greta Hlongwane on behalf of Emfuleni Local Municipality on Tuesday the 8th October 2013. The project seeks to provide sanitary pads to girls from marginalised locations and schools since these are the most affected.

The sanitary towels were distributed during the launch the Dignity Packs Project for needy girl learners from poor households, and it was extended to several schools in around Emfuleni. These schools included Lebohang High School in Boipatong, Sapphire High School in Bophelong, Polokong high and Thandukwazi High School in Sebokeng. This initiative forms part of the broader government strategy to declare war on poverty, which is intended to benefit poor households. Poor adolescent girls were the benefactors to this magnificent initiative aimed at providing them with basic toiletries and sanitary towels. The dignity packs included enough sanitary towels, face cloths, deodorants (roll-on), toothbrushes and toothpaste amongst other things.
