The Grassy Park Empowerment Forum, a registered NPO, in collaboration with New Horizon Civic Association, Grassy Park CPF / SAPS and GP Neighborhood Watches have launched a Sanitary Pad & Female hygiene drive in support of women and girls in the greater Grassy Park community. In line with the GPEF’s vision and mission of building community and empowerment we are proud to drive this initiative and therefore appeal for your support.

This initiative aims to collect personal hygiene care items and sanitary towels to be distributed to the less fortunate women and girls in our community. These items will be distributed via our various community workers to identified individuals.

Our Motto for this drive is ‘Emancipate ourselves from the prescribed gender superiority roles.’

We are reaching approximately 10 000 families spread over the areas of Grassy Park, Lotus River, Parkwood, Ottery, New Horizon, Pelican Park and Eagle Park on a daily basis.

We would appreciate any cash donations or sanitary towels, soap, wash cloths, sanitiser and female personal care items for this drive. We are happy to furnish a Section 18A tax certificate for any financial donations.

Financial donations can be done via EFT into the following bank account:
Nedbank cheque account: 1188 64 65 59
Account name: Grassy Park Empowerment Forum
Reference: PERIODPOVERTY 

Our contact person for this drive is Mr. David Benjamin and he can be reached at 082 592 3830.

SPECIAL APPEAL

COVID-19 FOOD DRIVE

The community needs your help

Due to the lockdown many homes are facing hard times.

The Grassy Park Empowerment forum, Grassy Park Community Police Forum and Grassy Park SAPS together with New Horizon Civic Association, have embarked on a drive to help ease some of the challenges with food parcels. These parcels will be delivered to those in need. To achieve such a venture we are appealing for donations.

The Grassy Park Empowerment Forum is a registered NPO and is tax compliant with a PBO Number.
