COME HELP US FIGHT PERIOD POVERTY!

Hamari Pahchan has launched the Sukhad Campaign wherein we are striving to provide 50,000 Sukhad Kits to underprivileged women in rural areas of India. Each Sukhad kit contains 24 packets of pads, 6 soaps and 50-60 disposal envelopes and a hope to bring period poverty down.

Sukhad Kit for 1 woman for 3 months = Rs. 400/-
Sukhad Kit for 5 women for 3 months = Rs. 2000/-
Sukhad Kit for 1 woman = Rs.1500/- for a year.
Sukhad Kit for 5 women = Rs.7500/- for a year.

 
97% of the menstruating population in rural India still uses old clothes for pads. Only 36% of the 336 million menstruating women in India use sanitary napkins. With the coming of Covid-19 crisis, this number underwent a dramatic decline.

During the Covid-19 era, menstrual hygiene was forced to take a back seat. Struggling to acquire even one meal a day, many women went back to their old menstrual customs of using cloth. As per a research, currently more than 11 crore adolescent girls are vulnerable to poor menstrual hygiene. 

The current efforts of the government and a few individuals alone will not be enough to come out of this situtation and provide rural women with a hygienic and healthy life which they deserve. This evidently requires contribution by each one of us. Your small contributions can make if not big but a life changing impact on at least one women. 

We at Hamari Pahchan seek to raise menstrual health awareness among menstruators, as well as other sections of the society. The primary goal is to break down the taboo around menstruation and make rural women learn the importance of menstural hygiene. We want to normalize period conversations not just among adolescent females, but among their families as well.


To put this in motion, we launched the Sukhad Campaign wherein we are striving to provide 50,000 Sukhad Kits to underprivileged women. Each kit contains 24 packets of pads, 6 soaps and 50-60 disposal envelopes. Along with the distribution drives, we also conduct workshops in order to educate women about the disposal methods and other necessary habits related to menstrual hygiene.

Majority of us are privileged enough to not realize the need of proper access to menstrual hygiene. But we must, because there are millions out there looking for our support. 

In just ₹400, you can guarantee 3 months of menstrual hygiene and comfort to an underprivileged woman.

I am Ritika, a hotel management graduate working with Hamari Pahchan. I have been working for this cause with the help of the Hamari Pahchan organization to help underprivileged women who are working in the rural areas even to feed a day's meal to their family to at least have their periods with comfort and hygiene.

A small contribution from you will make a big change in their lives.


We have been conducting distribution drives from the starting and we aim to conduct these every week in different areas. 

Your contribution for 1 woman would be essential to bring change in the society. We wish to help at least 50,000 menstruators by providing them with an access to healthy and safe periods.
