Story

The taboo of menstruation inflicts indignity upon millions of women and girls. The grave lack of facilities and appropriate sanitary products can push menstruating girls out of school, temporarily and sometimes permanently.
In order to empower young girls we organise sessions on Menstrual Hygiene Management and Reproductive health. The sessions aim to provide awareness on the biology of menstruation and busting many social myths associated with it and hygiene, The sessions are also leveraged to cover sexual abuse and sex education to help children understand as to what is sex abuse and how to prevent the same. We have covered almost 5000 beneficiaries over 150 sessions in Delhi, UP, Haryana and Rajasthan reaching out to both urban and rural populations.  Our current area of work is Madangir, a slum in south delhi where we have started a campaign. We have roped in community health workers also known as Asha (accredited social Health activists) Workers. We also have a sanitary pad bank supported by some like minded individuals and organisations to  provide regular supply of sanitary pads to girl who cannot afford. We require support to help us extend our reach to the most needy and also empowers these girls socially though education. Annual cost of the project is INR 1.5 lacs, each session cost INR 800.
