For Mandela Day this year: ASIE Personnel partnered with #18GirlChild and donated 100 luxury sanitary packs that will alleviate the financial strain that can limit young underprivileged girls. The packs consist of a facecloth, sanitary pads, soap, a key ring, mask, a chocolate, hand sanitizer and a body spray.
The packs will spread the #18GirlChild message across the nation. The packs contain a note of encouragement for their recipients which reads, “You are strong. You are Smart. You are Beautiful. You are not alone. You can do amazing things” says Layla #18GirlChild Founder.
“At ASIE Personnel we are passionate about enhancing lives, and this inspirational #18GirlChild project resonated with us and our values. To me, giving back is so important. Knowing that we can make a small difference, inspire someone or give someone hope. Letting them know that they matter, that there is still good in this world, and that someone cares.” says Asénath van den Berg, Director at ASIE Personnel
Roodepoort-based driver of change, Layla Mohamed, has taken her #18GirlChild project from strength to strength. What began as a selfless birthday wish has evolved into a now fully registered non-profit company (NPC) whose reach has the potential to be as limitless as the young beacon of hope herself.
Joining forces with Layla and #18GirlChild for Mandela Day is fellow female empowerment guru, Asenath van den Berg, Director of ASIE Personnel. Through the recruitment firm she founded almost 15 years ago, Asenath has been unearthing young talent and placing them on the pathway to their dreams. This cultured eye for potential helped Asenath recognise the value of #18GirlChild.
#18GirlChild is a non-profit initiative that is embedded in their flag-ship organisation, Seriti Compassion.
#18GirlChild vision and mission is to restore dignity to a girl child with integrity.
They are able to do so through the means of contributions, donations and sponsorships.For more information on the initiative please contact #18girlchild at email@example.com.
