We, Ananya Honnur and Mohini Rampuria, students of 11th grade have planned this fundraiser in the hope to raise Rs. 20,000 to help create awareness about menstrual health and hygiene. We are going to purchase Menstrupedia Comics, https://www.menstrupedia.com/
which aims to deliver informative content about menstruation, in a sensitive and entertaining manner for adolescent menstruators.
This comic is available in many regional languages for easier understanding by a larger audience. We will then distribute these comic books to various NGOs like Sarvani( based in Panchkula, Haryana ), PRATYeK (based in New Delhi) and other NGOs that we will be partnering up with shortly.
Sarvani is an all women-run organisation that aims to provide a platform that is easily accessible to all and create a medium for women to inspire each other and uplift one another. Sarvani also runs a home school called 'Sarvani Pathashala', where around 90 children have a unique learning experience through various workshops.
PRATYeK is a Delhi based NGO, that aims to train every child to advocate for every right for everyone. The organization helps empower children to speak up for their rights and they mainly work with children from underprivileged backgrounds.
We hope to gather your support in order to aid us in this mission and help create a safe environment for menstruators without taboos and myths surrounding them in our society.
You can make a donation and make a real impact on the life of an adolescent, and help create a society with greater menstrual health awarness!
