    This fundraiser will benefit

    SANSHIL FOUNDATION FOR WELFARE

    from Gurugram, Haryana

80G tax benefits for INR donations

During my voluntary work at Bagiya, a school for the underprivileged, I realized that most girls missed school during their menstrual cycle. It greatly disturbed me to note that about half the world's population experiences menstruation but it still stops women and girls from reaching their full potential.

In India, nearly 23 million girls drop out of school annually due to the lack of proper menstrual management facilities.

What we intend to do:
Project flow in partnership with the Sanshil Foundation has the following four fold approach:
1- To conduct awareness workshops to educate girls and women about menstrual hygiene.
2- To provide employment to the women of villages in Haryana who make our pads and sell it to us.
3- To distribute reusable pads to young girls and women as a safe and pocket friendly option.
4- To reduce menstrual waste as reusable pads last for over 2 years as against disposable pads which are for one time use only.

Why reusable pads?
As disposable pads are costly, village women have to use old cloth or hay, ash or sand wrapped around in a rag. These unhealthy  ways may cause Cervical Cancer, Reproductive Tract Infection, Hepatitis B infection to name a few. Apart from the physical problems these women and girls may suffer greatly from low self esteem and confidence and they may miss out on their education. 
Reusable pads are  a healthy and hygienic solution to this problem. They  last upto 2 years and are comfortable, leak proof and skin friendly.
They also have huge positive impact on the environment. As per Times of India, a single woman can generate upto 125 kilograms of non-biodegradable waste during her menstrual years which takes upto 500-800 years to decompose.

How can you help?
We need your help in making sure that the young girls and women who are missing out on crucial growth opportunities are given wings to fly. Your donations would help us to buy, arrange and distribute Project Flow sanitary kits. These consist of 3 reusable pads made from 100% organic cotton along with instructions in the vernacular language. The cost of production for each kit is Rs. 180. Your contribution can begin with as little as one kit.

We look forward to your support!
