This Women’s Month, Discovery Vitality has partnered with Dis-Chem and Miss SA 2018, Tamaryn Green, to empower schoolgirls and help them maintain their dignity – by providing sanitary products to girls in need. Tamaryn Green has committed to the empowerment of young women as one of the objectives of her reign as Miss South Africa 2018.


Discovery Vitality raised over 42,000 sanitary packs last year to donate to schoolgirls in need and we are hoping to make an even bigger contribution this year, with your help.


Here is how you can get involved


Achieve your Vitality Active Rewards goal and for the month of August, you will have the option to donate your rewards through Vitality MoveToGive instead of your usual drink or snack. Your donation will provide a sanitary pack through Dis-Chem with StayFree to the Caring4Girls programme that will distribute the products to communities in need.


PLUS as part of Dis-Chem with StayFree’s commitment to this initiative, for every pack donation you make through Vitality MoveToGive they will double it.


Your contribution will assist with improving the health and gender equality of schoolgirls in our country.


Get active to get (others) rewarded.
