Municipality revamps its client’s service

As part of its continuous long term program to inculcate the culture of payment for services among its residents, the Rustenburg Local Municipality has developed an integrated, comprehensive and yet realistic plan to ensure total customer satisfaction as residents meet their monthly obligation to pay for the services they receive from the municipality. 
The plan includes amongst others the following:

Project Dignity

Project Dignity is a project aimed at providing sanitary towels to disadvantaged schools especially farm schools.  It was a shocking and disturbing discovery that most girls who are in their puberty phase skip school or miss school during the time they are on their periods.  Girls have been found to be using toilet paper, newspaper, bandages, and other disturbing unsanitary items, a lack of sanitary supplies available to them and leads to many girls missing out on important lessons at schools and a high level of absenteeism in schools as a result.
