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 old cloth, reused cloth, 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 the TABOO remains.

I'm Palak, a student, working with Hamari Pahchan NGO. I've started working towards the cause of menstrual hygiene. I want to ensure that the underprivileged women of society have proper menstrual hygiene to avoid long-term effects, prevent skin diseases, etc. While menstrual hygiene needs immediate attention, looking forward, I would also like to help educate women and girls on using sustainable menstrual products and distribute the same to the underprivileged, so we can avoid damaging the Earth.

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




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 Kit for 5 women = Rs.7,000/-
