    Inner Wear and Sanitary Pads for Orphanage Girls

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

Story

Whenever people visit an orphanage most likely they offer food. Some give books, some may give used dresses. But what about Inner Wear and Sanitary pads for girls? Whom shall they ask? When they ask the caretaker if approved okay. Otherwise asking again and waiting is so embarrassing and uncomfortable.

HOW MUCH COST?
One set of Inner Garments (bra+petticoat +panty +sanitary pack) cost Rs 200. And we give two sets to each orphan girl, which means Rs 400 per pair.
Giving not just once, but repeatedly for every 4-6 months.


HOW WE DO?
We visit the orphanage first. Take details of girls and sizes from the caretaker. We again visit another orphanage and take details of the girls again. Like this till we get details of 100 girls. Meanwhile, We keep campaigning the cause for donations, by the time we get 100 girls' information.

Then we collate the data as to how many numbers required against each size. Buy in a lot from a Good Vendor, who liked this social cause and agreed to give at zero profit.

Sanitary Pads are a very essential need and poor women are neither able to get or nor afford them. It puts their health and dignity both at huge risk.

Then we visit again the orphanages, one by one, as a group along with volunteers. Female volunteers not only distribute the innerwear, but they also take sessions for girls of different age groups creating awareness about the importance of using innerwear and also clear their doubts if any of any menstrual hygiene and other things from a girl's perspective.
