He's bright, he's talkative, he is only 22.
At an age where others his age are worrying and planning about their future, this boy is making sure that girls and women have access to safe and hygienic period every month.
How? Sobhan has managed to strike a deal with a wholesale supplier of sanitary napkins who gives him the napkins at Rs. 3.20 per piece. He buys them in bulk. Then he distributes them to 30 public toilets in Kolkata every week. Yes, every week. In these public toilets, the napkins are available for Rs. 2 a piece.
The money comes from his own pocket right now - a part coming from the sale of a newsletter he runs.
Of a time when he has access to all slums and villages where he can go and make girls and women aware of the importance of having a safe and hygienic period. Of a time when every woman will be able to access a napkin without having to worry about the expenditure.
It's time for us to fulfill this dream. To make sure he can sustain "Bandhan." That he is not alone.
