Liza Adlem chats to us about the project she is involved with with SubzPads called Project Dignity.
She started her career as a computer programmer but soon realised that this was not her ideal job. To meet her desire to interact more with people, she completed a BA Industrial Psychology and swopped her Programming job for that of Recruitment Consultant specialising in Information Technology.
Her passion for SUBZ was ignited when she read an article on Sue Barnes’s SUBZ and realised the sad truth that so many girls miss school each month due to not being able to afford sanitary towels. After participating in many endurance events, she came across SUBZ again which really touched her heart and she chose SUBZ as her charity and later went on to becoming their Brand Ambassador.
Project Dignity is aimed to reach young pre-pubescent women with product and programmes to increase their access to education, knowledge of physiological and emotional changes and by so doing increase their self-esteem.
Our aim is for all the young girls to be introduced to puberty and understand and know what happens to girls as they grow from a girl to a young woman. The program assesses impact with young girls and implements additional support through the coordination of girls clubs. Girls clubs will enable this project to grow and become sustainable within their respective communities.
