Hey!! how are you?
I have started a small initiative. It would be of great help if you take out some time and read this message.
Campaign title: Menstrual Hygiene
Campaign Story: hey!! My name is Khanak Sharma. I am a law student. I am keen to work for the betterment of society and give my best in uplifting the unprivileged sections of our society. To execute the same i have been involved with several NGOs ( non governmental organisations) and trying to help the needy people out there. Currently I am working with Hamari Pahchan NGO on several causes like women safety, child rights, proper education for children etc.
Every month, 1.8 billion people across the world menstruate. Millions of these girls, women, transgender men and non-binary persons are unable to manage their menstrual cycle in a dignified, healthy way.
Poor menstrual hygiene, however, can pose serious health risks, like reproductive and urinary tract infections which can result in future infertility and birth complications.
With your kind support Hamari Pahchan NGO can help womens' out there with the right knowledge and guidance about menstrual Hygiene. Please feel free to donate some money towards this cause by clicking on the link below. I am waiting for your donations ☺️.

On a global level, at least 500 million women and girls lack adequate facilities for menstrual hygiene management. More than 77% of menstruating women in India use an old cloth, which is often reused, ashes, newspapers, dried leaves and husk sand during periods.

Lack of knowledge as to how one should maintain their hygiene during menstruation can cause problems with long term effects. Underprivileged women who do not have access, means or the knowledge regarding the same suffer during these hard times and hence the TABOO remains.

I'm Divya, a social worker, working with Hamari Pahchan NGO, I've been working towards the cause of menstrual hygiene from a very long time. It interests me because I want to educate people on the topic. I want the underprivileged women of society to have a proper menstrual hygiene so that there are no long-term effects, they don't get affected by skin diseases etc.

On World Menstrual Hygiene Day, Hamari Pahchan NGO distributed Sanitary Kits and it came in limelight on Republic Bharat news channel:



After conducting a survey in the slums, it was discovered that there are women who are suffering from various problems due to non-maintenance of their menstrual health.

I'll be distributing Sanitary Kits to these underprivileged women so that they have the proper means and access to good hygiene. 

Hamari Pahchan NGO has distributed more than 30,000 Sukhad Kits in 2021 and their aim is to distribute at least 50,000 Sukhad Kits to women. These kits would include 24 packets of Sanitary Pads 6 packets of Soap and disposable paper envelopes.

Sukhad Kit for 1 woman = Rs.1400/-
Sukhad Kt for 5 women = Rs.7,000/-
