FABI’s year of giving back 2018-04-06
FABI is running the FABI Flower Drive, a yearlong campaign to collect sanitary products for girls at school who cannot afford them. The high cost of sanitary products such as pads and tampons can be crippling, forcing girls to miss valuable time in the classroom every month. To mark the beginning of the school year, FABIans collected 189 packets of stationery items and 304 sanitary products earlier this year. Staff and students can drop their donations sanitary products in a box placed at the FABI reception area
The Institute will also resume its annual FABI Blanket Drive to deliver warm winter clothing and blankets to community organisations in the Tshwane municipality. FABI last year donated blankets and clothes to Akanani, an organisation that aids homeless communities in the city centre.
