Story

HII MY NAME IS DAMINI SINGH . I AM A VOLUNTEER AT HUMARI PHECHAN NGO. I AM WORKING ON THE CAUSE SUKHAD PROJECT (MENSTRUAL HYGIENE ) . I HAVE CHOOSE THIS CAUSE BECAUSE OF THE FOLLOWING REASONS : 

IN MANY PARTS OF THE COUNTRY ESPECIALLY IN RURAL AREAS GIRLS ARE NOT PREPARED AND AWARE ABOUT MENSURATION SO THEY FACE MANY DIFFICULTIES AND CHALLENGES AT HOME , SCHOOL AND WORK PLACE .
IT IS FOUND THAT GIRLS AND WOMEN HAVE VERY LESS OR NO KNOWLEDGE ABOUT REPRODUCTIVE TRACT INFECTION CAUSED DUE TO IGNORANCE OF PERSONAL HYGIENE DURING MENSURATION TIME.

IN RURAL AREAS WOMEN DO NOT HAVE ACCESS TO SANITARY PRODUCTS OR THEY KNOW VERY LITTLE ABOUT THE TYPES AND METHODS OF USING THEM OR ARE UNABLE TO AFFORD SUCH PRODUCTS DUE TO HIGH COST . WOMEN  MANAGE MENSURATION DIFFERENTLY WHEN THEY ARE AT HOME OR OUTSIDE  ; AT HOME THEY DISPOSE OF MENSTRUAL PRODUCTS IN DOMESTIC WASTES AND IN PUBLIC TOILETS THEY FLUSH THEM IN THE TOILETS WITHOUT KNOWING THE CONSEQUENCES OF CHOKING .
SO THERE SHOULD BE A NEED TO EDUCATE AND MAKE THEM AWARE ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION AND HEALTH HAZARD ASSOCIATED WITH THEM ALSO AWARENESS SHOULD BE CREATED TO EMPHASIZE THE USE OF REUSABLE  SANITARY PRODUCTS OR THE NATURAL SANITARY PRODUCTS .
 MENSTRUAL FLOWS WAS SEEN AS DIRTY ,POLLUTING AND SHAMELESS, 
SO WOMEN HIDE MENSTRUAL CLOTHS FOR FEAR OF BEING CURSED . BY EDUCATING BOTH MEN AND WOMEN WE CAN OVERCOME THESE FALSE BELIEFS AND TABOOS.
