Project - Free Days Happy Days

Specifications
Only 58% of India’s 355 million menstruating women use sanitary napkins. Over 88% of women resort to shocking alternatives like unsanitized cloth, ashes and husk sand. Incidents of Reproductive Tract infection is 70% more common among these women. According to a study by Times of India 70% of women cannot afford to buy sanitary napkins in India.

The Challenges of being a woman
1. Lack of Closed Spaces
2. Use of Cloth/Paper/Unhygine material over sanitary napkins
3. Lack of knowledge
4. Social Taboos
5. The Silent Treatment

A Noble Cause
To solve this problem, we have started an initiative “Free Days Happy Days” whereby focusing adolescent girls, they shall be given a pack of 7 pads every month. There are many problems in girls in their starting stages of the menstrual cycle and to provide them education on the same, we have created 5 session program for giving them an understanding of menstrual cycle, using pads and benefits. This movement will make every girl participant an important and self-reliant stakeholder.

The challenge is to tackle the age-old taboo - Menstrual cycle - by creating awareness, access to a clean menstrual cycle and thus boosting the confidence of adolescent girls.


Facts and Figures
The Program aims to focus on 2000 adolescent girls from different govt and non govt schools for one year. They will be provided free Hygiene Kit with 6 sessions of the educationon menstrual cycle, causes, problems, usage of pads and benefits. The kit includes following:
1. 7 pads of sanitary napkins
2. Sanitiser
3. A Pack of Disposal Bags

The Cost of Each Kit is 60₹ which coves napkins packet price of 30₹

Global Appeal
We would like your cooperation to raise the fund required for giving success to this project.

Dear Supporters,

Here's a quick update:

The Most common problem of every girl child is their menstruation which they don't know to with whom they can share. Mothers have been quite busy in daily chores. And it's a fact that most of the mothers don't get time to look at their girls while they are busy filling for daily expenses.  Every girl faces a different issue and hormonal problems and we try to take this issue in a very healthy way so that each girl can interact with us and share their problems.

During our visits to different schools, many girls have been observed via a team of doctors and they have been medicated. The cost of these has been covered from the donation which we have received via this funding problem and for that.

I would like to thank the donors who have considered this initiative a noble cause for poor girls.

Suggest you to keep infirming these poor children about government free education opportunity schemes ... if we connect them with those... will be g8 boon and their Aadhaar card creation and Bank account. This will help them in long run.
