As a child, I used to sit with my house helps kid, and we would do our homework together. She was in the same class as mine.
But one day she came but without her books. And when I asked her, she told me that her period had started with her periods, and she couldn’t go to school anymore. Thankfully, my mom and I could talk her out of it by explaining and busting myths for both her mother and her.
But not every girl is this lucky.
I am Rashmi Raj, currently doing a Master’s in Economics and Analytics from Christ University. I am working as a volunteer for an NGO named “Hamari Pahchan” for a project called “Sukhad -Helps Underprivileged women to get access to proper menstrual hygiene.”
