INNER WEAR - A SYMBOL OF DIGNITY AND CONFIDENCE FOR FEMALE
WHAT IS IT
Whenever people visit an orphanage most likely they offer food. Some give books, some may give used dresses. But what about Inner Wear for girls? Whom shall they ask? When they ask care taker, if approved okay. Otherwise asking again and waiting is so embarrassing and uncomfortable.
WHAT ARE WE
We, Team EXTRA MILE, a NPO non profit organisation, born for this cause, with a target of providing inner garments for 1000 orphanage girls in 3 years.HOW MUCH COST
One set of Inner Garments (bra+petticoat +panty) cost Rs 150. And we give two sets to each orphan girl, means Rs 300 per pair. Giving not just once, but repeatedly for every 4-6 months. We started with 100 girls in 2017 and now reached to a number 300. orphanage girls.
HOW WE DO
We visit orphanage first. Take details of girls and sizes from the care taker. We again visit another orphanage and take details of girls again. Like this till we get details of 100 girls. Meanwhile we keep campaign the cause for donations, by the time we get 100 girls information.
Then we collate the data as how many numbers required against each size. Buy in lot from a Good Vendor, who liked this social cause and agreed to give at zero profit.
Then we visit again the orphanages, one by one, as a group along with volunteers. Female volunteers not only distribute the inner wear, they also take sessions for girls of different age groups creating awareness about importance of using inner wear and also clear their doubts if any of any menstrual hygiene and other things on a girl's perspective.
