Hi everyone, I am Tinotenda Mitchelle Musiyandaka, a mass communication and journalism student at Parul university. I am currently doing my internship with Hamari Pahchan which is a NGO that helps unprivileged women and other projects that may not be listed. However there is one particular project that caught my eye and I decided to be a part of it. Sukhad is the name of the project and it’s main goal is to help unprivileged women during  their menstrual cycle . We help then with sanitary pads, proper menstrual hygiene information
.Project Sukhad is in desperate need of an hour,
and we must all come together to help.
WE ARE PLANNING TO DISTRIBUTE AROUND

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 the knowledge regarding the same suffer during these hard times and hence the TABOO remains.

I'm Divya, a social worker, working with Hamari Pahchan NGO, I've been working towards the cause of menstrual hygiene from a very long time. It interests me because I want to educate people on the topic. I want the underprivileged women of society to have a proper menstrual hygiene so that there are no long-term effects, they don't get affected by skin diseases etc.

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



After conducting a survey in the slums, it was discovered that there are women who are suffering from various problems due to 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 their aim is 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/-
