Hello, My name is Mayher Kaur and I’m a student. I’m doing an internship with Hamari Pahchan NGO and I’m currently working on a menstrual hygiene project, “Sukhad Project”.
This project is an initiative for underprivileged women to help them spend their periods comfortably with proper means and knowledge. Providing them with sanitary pads, educating them on good menstrual hygiene practices and raising awareness on the fact that 'periods' and talking about the same is not a taboo but a natural process.
Hamari Pahchan NGO is trying to establish pad-making machines so that free distribution of pads is done every week which would be sufficient for the women for at least 3 months.
They are also conducting distribution drives every week where 'Sukhad Kit' is distributed which includes pads, soap, paper for disposal, and other essential items. स्वस्थय को है बचाना तो हर औरत को है पैड इस्तेमाल मे लाना
Hamari Pahchan Ngo is going to organize another mass distribution on World Menstrual Hygiene Day i.e. 28th May 2021.

Discrimination against menstruating women is widespread in India, where periods have long been a taboo and considered impure.
They are often excluded from social and religious events, denied entry into temples and shrines and even kept out of kitchens.
Given the lack of conversation about periods, according to one study, 71% of adolescent girls in India are unaware of menstruation until they get it themselves.
Campaigners say it shows that parents rarely prepare their daughters for something they know is bound to happen. And this unpreparedness leads to so much avoidable fear and anxiety.
To smash the taboos around periods, we need to talk about them in a normal way. We want women, girls and everyone who menstruates to feel confident about their bodies.
