What is #Menstruation2019 Campaign?

On the occasion of Menstrual Hygiene Day which falls on the 28th May 2019, Upasana Society NGO in collaboration with Dipti K plan to provide sustainable menstrual options to 2019 underprivileged girls/women throughout India to begin with.

Do you know that 1 Menstrual cup lasts for 6 to 7 years and this can reduce the dependency on non-biodegradable sanitary pads. The end result will be beneficial for the environment and also add relief & comfort to the girls/women in a big way.

Upasana Society in association with Dipti K has been conducting these menstrual hygiene workshops in schools, colleges, societies and corporates throughout India.

This campaign focuses on spreading awareness about sustainable menstruation products which cause less harm to the environment and are also comfortable and beneficial for the girls/women who use it.

We are trying to spread awareness of these products in the urban areas as they can afford them easily and bring about a positive change for the environment. Once we spread this awareness we will seek support from the privileged living in the urban areas to help the underprivileged in the rural areas who cannot afford the same.

This will be an ongoing campaign and will include workshops/visits to understand the present situation dealing with menstrual hygiene, myths & taboos amongst the underprivileged girls/women. Once identified, providing them with sanitary pads for a span of 3 to 4 months while educating them with the right use of menstrual cups. The workshops will resolve the queries and doubts of these individuals.

One can get in touch with us to conduct these workshops in Schools, Colleges, societies and corporates around them. These workshops are free of cost but based on the location we charge for travel, food and accommodation.

If you wish to bring about a change in the life of 1 underprivileged girl/woman for a minimum period of 6 to 7 years, you can donate Rs. 2000/- to us. You can also raise funds for us so that we can provide it to as many girls/women as possible.
