Problem: Still in rural areas, more than 62% of adolescent school girls are unaware of good hygiene practices during the menstrual periods. Still, they are using traditional old clothes instead of sanitary pads during menses due to which there are chances of them catching infections. Many girls are unaware of dietary management and there are many traditional taboos due to which school drop-out ratio is very high. Hence, there is a need for Menstrual Hygiene Management Program in each and every school, especially rural areas.

OUR SOLUTION: As HARC, we have already started working on 'Menstrual Hygiene Management Programs since January 2019. So plan to organise this awareness program in each and every school of Parbhani, Hongpai, Nanded, Beed district especially rural area by giving them workshops on menstrual cycle, its general physiology, hygienic practices, use of sanitary pads, care and diet during menses, management of various menstrual problems, disposals of sanitary pads and self assessment exam to eradicate any disbelief and various misunderstanding about menstrual cycle. So we are planning to organize such a program in Zilla Parishad High School especially for adolescent girls and for various self-help groups of women and interaction with them and will educate through LCD projector and free distribution of sanitary pads etc.
