    This fundraiser will benefit


    from New Delhi, Delhi

On a global level, at least 500 million women and girls lack adequate facilities for menstrual hygiene management. More than 77% of menstruating women in India use an old cloth, which is often reused, ashes, newspapers, dried leaves and husk sand during periods.

Lack of knowledge as to how one should maintain their hygiene during menstruation can cause problems with long-term effects. Underprivileged women who do not have access, means or knowledge regarding the same suffer during these hard times and hence the TABOO remains.

I'm Nirman, a recently joined social worker, working with Hamari Pahchan NGO, and this is my first fundraiser initiative. Although without much experience of the true hardships and struggles the true outside life, I want to do my best and help these underprivileged members of our society have proper menstrual hygiene, something that they so rightfully deserve. Through the joint effort of all of us, we can bring about a slightly better tomorrow and become a better version of ourselves in return. 

On World Menstrual Hygiene Day, Hamari Pahchan NGO distributed Sanitary Kits and it came in limelight on the Republic Bharat news channel:

After surveying the slums, it was discovered that there are women who are suffering from various problems due to the non-maintenance of their menstrual health.

I'll be distributing Sanitary Kits to these underprivileged women so that they have the proper means and access to good hygiene. 

Hamari Pahchan NGO has distributed more than 30,000 Sukhad Kits in 2021 and they aim to distribute at least 50,000 Sukhad Kits to women. These kits would include 24 packets of Sanitary Pads 6 packets of Soap and disposable paper envelopes.

Sukhad Kit for 1 woman = Rs.1400/-
Sukhad Kt for 5 women = Rs.7,000/-
