Story

Hello everyone!!!
I am Ashi Singhal. I am a young enthusiast currently pursuing BBA LLB Hons. from IMS Unison University, Dehradun, Uttarakhand, a freshman year student. Issues like this really backfires me, creates an urge inside me to put my contribution in eliminating these. Obviously there are some instances which always motivates me, likewise, I have seen at many places that menstruation is considered to be a tabboo, women are literally be called "apavitra" during those days. They are stopped to enter into temples, kitchens and what not. 
Moreover the knowledge which our population is having is so unbearable, it should be taken upto extent. 
Various analysis shown that out of 40 crore menstruating women in India, at rural places, less than 20% use sanitary pads. In urban areas, this no. only goes upto 52%.
This indicates that nearly half of even urban based women use unhygienic methods for period protection, making them vulnerable to health issues.
The whole scenario shows that how illiterate our nation is regarding the cause and how urgent it is to tackle current situation. 
 In November 2021, I gained the position of‘Volunteering (social entrepreneur)’ intern in Hamari Pahchan NGO. Since then I have decided to work on multiple projects and initiatives like Drishti, skill development, Covid-19 relief, etc. However, one of their projects has greatly inspired me, and I have decided to put my greatest contribution in it.
 'SUKHAD' is the name of the project. We will help them (underprivileged women) spend their periods comfortably with proper means and information under this initiative. 
Providing sanitary pads, educating them on proper menstrual hygiene, and raising awareness that 'periods' and discussing them is not a taboo topic, but rather a normal method
स्वस्थय को है बचाना तो हर औरत को है पैड इस्तेमाल मे लाना  
The famous foundation has also conducting distribution drives every week where 'Sukhad Kit' is distributed which includes pads, soap, paper envelopes for disposal, and other essential items.
हमारी पहचान बना रही है महिलाओ को सशक्त  
Project sukhad is the need of the hour and we all need to unite for the cause.
WE ARE PLANNING TO DISTRIBUTE AROUND 50K SUKHAD KITS TO UNDERPRIVILEGED WOMEN throughout the year. 
Per kit price: 
Sukhad kit for 1 woman = Rs. 1,400/- 
Sukhad kits for 5 women = Rs 7,000/- 
KIT INCLUDES 24 packets of the sanitary pad 6 packets of soap Disposable paper envelopes. I respectfully request that you all donate to this cause. Even a single penny makes a significant difference. I can tell the difference. The more you participate, the more I will be able to assist these ladies with their menstrual issues.
