    MASVINGO – MSU, Media and Society Studies students who were recently on a rural reporting trip have launched on  girlchild awareness campaign in the populous district of Gutu.
    The students who were led by Doctor Nyasha Mapuwei and Caven Masuku donated sanitary pads, bathing and washing soap, books, pens, food stuffs worth $500 to pupils at Matombo Primary and Secondary Schools. Teachers  at Matombo Secondary thanked Doctor  Mapuwei and his team for donating sanitary pads as some girls were using leaves and tissues during their menstruation because of the harsh economic conditions.
    “We are grateful for the donations especially sanitary pads, girls in marginalised communities’ resort to absconding classes, using leaves and tissues during menstruration. We uphold the girlchild campaign you have initiated here and we will try our best to make sure that every girl has sanitary pads,” said Mukoko
    “We always donate when we go on rural reporting trips, we are giving back to the community and urging others to contribute towards the upkeep of the school going children,” said Dr Mapuwei.
    The resources were raised by the students and lecturers through appeals to well-wishers.
