Story

Hey there!
I am Resham Jha.
I am currently a student, pursuing History Honours. Being someone who has always loved working with people , I want to contribute and do my part to give back to society, as best as possible.  With the onset of this month, I became an intern with Hamari Pahchan NGO. Living with dignity and having a sense of individualism, are morals that a lot of us hold very dear to our heart. Which is why, I want to contribute in the most constructive way, and help the underprivileged, learn and earn their dignified life and individuality. I am working on various projects as well as initiatives such as Dristhi, Skill Development etc. However there is one project, which I have decided to take upon myself.
The name of the project is ‘SUKHAD.’  
This project initially commenced as the Sukhad Initiative, started out to make the lives of underprivileged women easier and more comfortable  , during menstruation. Under SUKHAD, we provide underprivileged women with sanitary pads, educate them about proper menstrual hygiene and raise awareness about how ‘periods’ , unlike what their environment and upbringing taught them, isn’t a taboo but something natural which is completely normal to talk about.
Diane Mariechild rightfully said that  “a woman is the full circle. Within her, is the power to create, nurture and transform.” The aim of SUKHAD is to not only help these women by imparting them with knowledge and resources regarding menstrual hygiene but also to give them work under the ‘Skill Development Project’ so that they can earn their livelihood and become Atma Nirbhar ( Self-reliant).
Along with this, ‘SUKHAD-kit’ distribution drives are also conducted wherein pads, soap, paper envelopes for disposal, and other essential items are provided to them.
All of us should unite for this cause and do our part towards breaking these norms and normalise one of the most natural processes of nature and Project SUKHAD is the need of the moment.
WE ARE PLANNING TO DISTRIBUTE AROUND 50K SUKHAD KITS TO UNDERPRIVILEGED WOMEN throughout the year.
Per kit price:
Sukhad kit for 1 woman = Rs. 1,400/-
Sukhad kits for 5 women = Rs 7,000/-
This kit includes 24 Packets of sanitary pads and 6 packets of disposable paper soap envelopes. I urge all of you to kindly donate for this cause ! Drops of water make a mighty ocean, even the smallest penny would make a huge difference!
The more participation from you will help me assist these women tackle menstrual issues even more!
