Celebrate My Birthday and Honour Eusebius McKaiser’s Legacy!

I am calling on my friends to help celebrate her birthday this year by making a meaningful impact on the lives of young girls through the Mina Foundation. On this special occasion, let’s come together to support an incredible cause that was close to the heart of our late friend, Eusebius McKaiser.

Eusebius dedicated his life to fighting against the indignity and inhumanity of structural poverty and inequalities, particularly those faced by women and girls. He passionately raised his voice to shed light on the unyielding violence experienced by women and girls, especially those grappling with the daily challenges of period poverty. Did you know that more than 3 million girls miss about a quarter of their schooling days due to period poverty? This staggering reality moved Eusebius to join the Mina Foundation’s noble mission to eradicate period poverty. In November 2017, he became a Board Member and tirelessly championed urgent conversations about period poverty, focusing on educational institutions, and corporate South Africa, and actively involving young boys and men in understanding and eradicating this issue. Eusebius often reminded us, “If men experienced periods, sanitary pads and tampons would be free for all.”

The Mina Foundation’s goal is to provide period cups to 1 million girls, ensuring they have the resources they need for a dignified and uninterrupted education. Through partnerships like Gift of the Givers, they are making great strides towards achieving this goal. Eusebius actively participated in roadshows across universities, training students in period cup use, and sparking vital conversations about period poverty. As a social enterprise, the Mina Foundation dedicates all its proceeds to providing free period cups to underprivileged girls and women. Every period cup you purchase at Clicks means one free period cup is donated to a deserving girl.
