Support for Menstrual Hygiene of 3500 Girls in Telangana #Noshame

A neglected issue
Periods. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear or read this word? Believe it or not, even in the 21st century menstruation is a taboo for millions in our country. The situation is so severe in some communities that women and girls are imposed with restrictions for some of the most basic day-to-day activities, such as cooking and praying. They are barred from sleeping inside their house, touching certain food items, and are forced to miss school. . Young girls often grow up with limited or absolutely no knowledge about menstruation, as older women in their families and neighborhood are not comfortable talking about the issue.

Real Stories Of Change

Saatvika – 20-year-old leader

The MHM(Menstrual Hygiene Management) programme is not only about better health practices for girl children, but also fostering a sense of normalcy around a perfectly normal body function.

“I was faced with a difficult situation and all other girls have been through the same. It is important to talk about,” says Saatvika, one of the members of the Core Team Girls Group. 

Saatvika’s parents are educated and work with an NGO, so they make sure she has access to proper sanitation and knowledge. But at Siddipet, she can see that other girls her age need help.

Through MHM, Saatvika has educated 1,500 girls regarding menstrual hygiene. She has started to think objectively about menstruation.

“The other girls are shut away by their families. There are different rules for different castes. For example, upper-class girls can’t see their fathers for five days.” she says.  

Healthy bodies, bright future 
The goal is set and there is no looking back now. With a sum of INR 6,89,500, we will be able to reach out to 3500 adolescent girls in 35 schools of Telangana with lifesaving awareness campaigns on menstrual hygiene management. And you can make this happen!

You may support us for the entire programme or sponsor a school with a contribution of INR 20,000 reaching out to 100 girls with complete menstrual hygiene management programme.
