AIF aims to create awareness on life's important issues through charitable means and we have chosen the task of 'sensitization of sanitary napkin usage' among the economically weaker women and girls.
We would accomplish this by setting up a sanitary napkin manufacturing facility inside a girls' schools so that the adolescent girls understand and acquire the habit of preserving their hygiene.
A group of girls from these schools will be provided adequate inputs and motivation by AIF to make them responsible for managing the making and distribution end to end. This training will also provide the girls valuable skill to find a source of employment after their schooling.
Do you see the picture of the first batch of happy trainees along with our Board Member from one of such chosen schools?
The Action steps would be:
A sanitary napkin machine with its accessories will be installed in each of the chosen schools
AIF will fund the original cost - i.e. capital cost (including installation) as well as the working capital for the initial 6 months
Initial 3 months would be focused on training. Production during this period will be towards the in-school consumption.
Project viability would be measured through the following 3 months
Once the capacity utilization improves beyond 50%, the surplus over the in-school requirement would be sold through a SHG formed under this project, with the guidance and support from AIF.
We will not only be grateful for any support that you provide us on this project, but will also appreciate if you could share this link with your contacts (through social media, as well as emails) to help spread this campaign.
WE HAVE MADE THE ENTIRE PROCESS SO SIMPLE SUCH THAT IT TAKES YOU ONLY A MINUTE TO DONATE AND HELP US OUT
