Story

raising funds for menstrual hygiene to provide sanitary products to underprivileged girls who don't have access to education & sanitary products.
improve livelihoods of women by educating them about vaginal hygiene and all about menstruation. 
 It's so important that each and every girl is informed about menstruation, how it works and tips to maintain it with utmost hygiene. 
I asked few underprivileged girls what they used during their menses, some used pads if they were financially stable and others only if the "men" of the house allowed them to. Many used ash, cloth or mud which is very dangerous.

So many girls in our country die of cervical cancer. The current estimates indicate approximately 132,000 new cases diagnosed and 74,000 deaths annually in India, accounting to nearly 1/3rd of the global cervical cancer deaths. 

Today, there are other options like menstrual cups available for menstrual hygiene. However, women in rural areas tend to use cloth, sand, or ash during periods. Unsterilised cloth and other practices makes them susceptible to urinary tract infections and other problems.

Using sanitary products is advisable by gynaecologists. It's safer and more hygienic. 
If you see any girl around you who doesn't use sanitary products like
pads, menstrual cups or tampons, tell them about it. Raise awareness and this could save the girls from any reproductive tract infections.
