Making periods a non-issue for school girls

23% of girls drop out of school once they start menstruating
66% girls are unaware of menstruation

What does the program entails ?
"That time of the month" campaign will impact 1500 girls.
1. Conducting 3 Menstrual Hygiene Awareness sessions
2. Access to good quality sanitary pads, by supplying each girl with her annual need of 24 packets. 

Through this campaign, we aim to enable girls to manage their periods safely, hygienically and with dignity.

It only takes Rs. 999 to equip one girl with knowledge and habits to fight reproductive track infections, missing days of school and lack of confidence.

Dear Supporters,

Thank you for the support so far. With your support, we have raised funds for 60 girls from ThatTimeoftheMonth Campaign. Along with support from our generous CSR partners Loparex, we have been able to conduct awareness sessions and provide access to pads to 300 girls in Adarsh Vidya Mandir, Thane. There is still a long way to reach our target of 1500 girls. Do spread the word and help us make periods a non-issue.

Thank you for being an amazing support and helping the girls in the tribal areas of Sukma. We have an extremely positive update to share with you all.

With the help of your contribution, in November 2016, Shiksharth successfully distributed sanitary napkins to 1000 girls in Sukma. The distribution was carried out in five schools - Pota Cabin Chhindgarh, Pota Cabin Kumharraas, Pota Cabin Murtonda, Kasturba Gandhi Kanya Vidyalaya Sukma and ‘Saakaar' Gyanodaya Kanya Parisar.

"We cannot afford the napkins, and now we have got this for the whole year. We are all happy because now we don’t have to skip school during our periods," says Gangotri, a student from Murtonda Pota Cabin.A few teachers stated that at such affordable prices, the quality of the pads is very good. Many young tribal female staff used pads for the first time and could experience how hygiene leads to a healthier life.

A more significant change has been observed in the female staff in these residential schools, who were earlier unable to provide the right guidance to the girls. Because of better experiences, they are now able to deliver proper guidance, thereby ensuring healthy results in the future.

We will now be conducting an end of year detailed impact assessment with the girls.
