Social Responsibility


Phedišang Project


Each year the Grade 11 students are encouraged to apply for the seven-day Phedišang Residential Social Development Project in Limpopo. This project sees the selected group of students reside in a local village and facilitate training with the Phedišang leaders on Women’s Health and Reproductive issues, after which sustainable sanitary products are distributed to the community, as an activation for Women’s Month.

A Women’s Day march and netball tournament are organised by the Roedean volunteers and Phedišang leaders to celebrate their solidarity.

Since the inception of the Women’s Health Initiative, four years ago, the Roedean community has provided 1 600 girls with sustainable sanitary products. Roedean believes in Mandela’s statement, that “Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world”, thus enabling these young women to attend school regularly with the long-term possibility of breaking the cycle of poverty.
