  • To all the people who are about to read this little tid bit of information I'm about to share.. I'm pretty sure it will be the same campaign that you may have seen on the same advertisement or newspaper.. but it's not the same girl who gets the help.
  • Acknowledging the fact that a lot of people in rural india still consider "PERIOD" or "MENSTRUATION" a taboo fact. It's a biological science that has been ever present but still people take shame to the fact of mentioning it aloud or even talking about it. Myths and fake facts have been surrounding this simple process that a female has to go through . 
  • But although I've been mentioning it as a simple process.. the pain that a lot of women go through just to avail themselves of basic sanitation or sanitary napkins for those couple of days they go through every month is a serious fact no one has considered stating.
  • I may just be a normal teenager .. but the step that i am about to take is a profound one for the girls and women who would receive help from this.

To redefine the standards with which the women of the Nareshwadi village in Dahanu district of Maharashtra are dwelling, especially during their menstrual cycle, the Muskurahat Foundation has started the Period of Sharing campaign to meet their proper requirements and make them feel loved and cared for. These women are living in the verge of ruining their health and well-being, without any sanitary napkins to soak the blood oozing out during menstruation. Many of them take the help of raw cotton, thin cotton cloth fabrics, or even wild leaves. To ensure that their sanitation and hygiene are not at stake, the Muskarahat Foundation is reaching out to these under-privileged women of our society and distributing them sanitary napkins free of cost, with the help they receive from our part.

The Muskurahat Foundation, initiated by an enthusiastic 16-year old Himanshu Goenka in June 2014, is now working collectively to replace sanitary napkins with Menstrual cups for better pay-off.
The contributions you make towards this cause would ensure sustainable development of rural women for their sanitary needs.

Become a part of this privilege and honour yourself with the Period of Sharing!
May God Bless You!
