A neglected issue
Periods. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you hear or read this word? Believe it or not, even in the 21st century, menstruation is a taboo for millions in our country. The situation is so severe in some communities that women and girls are imposed with restrictions for some of the most basic day-to-day activities, such as cooking and praying. They are barred from sleeping inside their house or touching certain foods or going to school or even using taps and water pumps. Young girls often grow up with limited  or absolutely no knowledge about menstruation, as older women in their families and neighbourhood are not comfortable talking about menstruation.
Empowering the change makers

G. Pushpalatha, 20, lives with her parents and siblings in Siddipet district of Telangana. She grew up in an environment replete with superstitions around menstruation, believing most of them to be true. But today the situation is different for Pushpalatha. WaterAid, along with its local partners, is making a conscious effort to reach out to adolescent girls and women to break these taboos and raise awareness around menstrual hygiene issues.
And that is not all. Pushpalatha is a now a proud member of the District Core Team Girls Group, a platform where adolescent girls come together to discuss the issue and train other girls in her area on menstrual hygiene management. She feels empowered to change lives and save several other girls from facing health issues at a later stage in their lives.

Healthy bodies, bright future 
The goal is set and there is no looking back now. With a sum of INR 6,89,500, we will be able to reach out to 3500 adolescent girls in 35 schools of Telangana with lifesaving awareness campaigns on menstrual hygiene management. And you can make this happen!
You may support us for the entire programme or sponsor a school with a contribution of INR 20,000 reaching out to 100 girls with complete menstrual hygiene management programme.
