    This fundraiser will benefit


    from Mirzapur


my city due to some reasons and that’s when it all started. While working on one of its projects centered at women’s periods, I realized it is nothing but a base of life of female humans that nobody should be ashamed of. Simultaneously, it was very sad when I came to know about a fact that still, even after lots of advancements and all, girls and women living in some rural areas, especially in Kunda, Pratapgharh, use old socks or rags filled with ash or sawdust as an alternative for sanitary napkins during their menstrual period, thus exposing themselves more to vaginal and many other infections.
After a while, when there was no such project going on anywhere else as far as I knew, I decided that I myself would try to provide females with sanitary napkins and make them aware of its uses and advantages and many such pros, no matter if it is a rural or an urban area. All that mattered was a necessity.
I’ll be honest here, it took me a lot of courage and time to act on my decision, but eventually, it happened and it could be no better than my own village ( Gaura, Jigna, Mirzapur, Uttar Pradesh- 231313) to start off with. I bought pads and sanitary napkins, organized awareness gatherings, sometimes had to go door to door as well, but it all went much better than I could ever expect. Of course, I had donated pads and sanitary napkins previously also, but as an independent worker, or reformer or whatever you wish to call, it was my first time.
ince then, I have become a part of many such campaigns and to be honest and candid, these campaigns need financial support, for it is the backbone of any such campaign. So, I on behalf of many who would request you to support and who actually need it, would request you to contribute with any amount of your choice and become a part of an initiative.Your contribution matters to many. Please do consider contributing.
otal number of ladies in my village is 12000(approximately)
According to 2011 census

I donate pads to 1000 ladies only

Cost of one pad is 16₹/packet and a lady receive 4 packets.
So, 4x1000x16=64,000₹
Remaining amount were used for compaign and extra activities
