Thank you for being an amazing support and helping the girls in the tribal areas of Sukma. We have an extremely positive update to share with you all.

With the help of your contribution, in November 2016, Shiksharth successfully distributed sanitary napkins to 1000 girls in Sukma. The distribution was carried out in five schools - Pota Cabin Chhindgarh, Pota Cabin Kumharraas, Pota Cabin Murtonda, Kasturba Gandhi Kanya Vidyalaya Sukma and ‘Saakaar' Gyanodaya Kanya Parisar.

"We cannot afford the napkins, and now we have got this for the whole year. We are all happy because now we don’t have to skip school during our periods," says Gangotri, a student from Murtonda Pota Cabin.A few teachers stated that at such affordable prices, the quality of the pads is very good. Many young tribal female staff used pads for the first time and could experience how hygiene leads to a healthier life.
