Period Poverty

End Period Poverty Outreach at Hoërskool Sutherland

Beginet visited Sutherland Hoërskool to donate reusable sanitary pads to girls. It was heart-warming to see the smiles on the girls’ faces and their gratitude was humbling. Some of the girls told us that these reusable sanitary pads will go a long way in managing their period and they no longer have to miss days of school when they are on their periods because they can’t afford sanitary pads. These girls don’t want to miss any school day. They want to learn everything they can so that they can lead successful lives and support their families.

Northern Cape Drought

Northern Cape Drought Outreach

Beginet spent a week in the Northern Cape to probe how farmers manage to keep their heads above water during the seemingly never-ending drought. We also donated laptops to homeschooled children, and distribute reusable sanitary pads to girls in schools. We also created content to make a documentary to help raise awareness about drought-stricken areas in the Northern Cape, and how farmers are affected by the drought. We feel honored to have been able to serve and help uplift the people in these ways.

Do I hold on to bitterness or forgive?

Usually people don’t want to forgive. We want to hold on to bitterness because we think, if I forgive the people who hurt me, then I’m condoning their actions. I’m saying that what they did is okay, that I have to be close to them again. That is not true at all. God is the judge, and He will judge appropriately. Bitterness, lack of forgiveness, and grudges often harm the one holding on to them the most. However, when we forgive we essentially say, “You can’t destroy me, end me or hinder me any longer, because my God heals. He is better than bitterness.” It also shows the world that we truly understand how much God has forgiven us.
