    This fundraiser will benefit

    The underprivileged girls and women for a better menstruating life especially in this Pandemic

    from Slum areas

In India, over 23 million girls drop of out school at the onset of menarche because of a lack of access to safe menstrual products. Only 36% of menstruating women have access to safe, sanitary products while the remaining use a variety of unsafe methods like ash, husk, old rags, banana peels, etc. Using such unhygienic methods to manage menstruation can have serious health consequences such as Reproductive Tract Infection, Urinary Tract Infection, and vaginal infections but also lead to other psycho-socio-economic consequences.

Girl Up India has joined hands with Project Baala to take a step towards menstrual equity and hygiene by organizing Project Adhikaar, a pan-India fundraiser and awareness campaign.
Adhikaar in Hindi means RIGHTS and we strongly believe that it is our basic human right to bleed with dignity and safety!
Let's together collect funds to help the underprivileged women and girls to lead a happy menstruating life especially in this unprecedented time of the pandemic.
