Project - Free Days Happy Days

Specifications
Only 58% of India’s 355 million menstruating women use sanitary napkins. Over 88% of women resort to shocking alternatives like unsanitized cloth, ashes and husk sand. Incidents of Reproductive Tract infection is 70% more common among these women. According to a study by Times of India 70% of women cannot afford to buy sanitary napkins in India.
The Challenges of being a woman
1. Lack of Closed Spaces
2. Use of Cloth/Paper/Unhygine material over sanitary napkins
3. Lack of knowledge
4. Social Taboos
5. The Silent Treatment
A Noble CauseTo solve this problem, we have started an initiative “Free Days Happy Days” whereby focusing women and adolescent girls, they shall be given a pack of 6 pads every month. There are many problems in women and girls in their starting stages of the menstrual cycle and to provide them education on the same, we have created 5 session program for giving them an understanding of menstrual cycle, using pads and benefits. This movement will make every women and girl participant an important and self-reliant stakeholder.
The challenge is to tackle the age-old taboo - Menstrual cycle - by creating awareness, access to a clean menstrual cycle and thus boosting the confidence of adolescent girls.

Facts and Figures
The Program aims to focus on 20000 women and adolescent girls from different govt and non govt schools for one year. They will be provided free Hygiene Kit with 6 sessions of the educationon menstrual cycle, causes, problems, usage of pads and benefits. The kit includes following:
