Hello! I am Ananya Sinha. I am a first year law student studying in Kiit School of Law.
This is my first experience interning for a non-governmental organization (NGO). Prior to this, I had volunteered for  organizations who work for social causes ,especially in the area of providing education to the underprivileged children. I have engaged in conducting educational and recreational activities for the children.
 Menstrual Hygiene is a necessity for every women and with this initiative we are trying to educate them and make their life a little easier during the time of menstruation by providing them with Sanitary Pads. This initiative has inspired me a lot and I am fortunate that I am able to contribute towards it in whatever way I can.

Sukhad project aimed at providing 50,000 sanitary kits to underprivileged and poor women. Initially started as ‘Sukhad Initiative’, this initiative helped thousands of women having better menstrual hygiene during their menstruation. Our aim is now to distribute 50,000 Sanitary Kits to these women which will include 6 Packets of Sanitary Pads, 2 Soaps, 50-60 Disposal envelops.

We not only help these women with better menstrual hygiene but also we aimed at giving work to underprivileged women under the ‘Skill Development Project’ this is the reason we’ve decided to engage underprivileged women in the production of these paper bags and paper envelopes so that they can earn their livelihood from the same and become “Atma Nirbhar”

Aim to distribute menstrual hygiene kit to 50,000 women.
1KIT will guarantee 3 months of menstrual hygiene and comfort to an underprivileged women in just Rs 350 /-


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/-
