CAUSE INTRODUCTION

Every year, more than 23 million female students in India drop out of school due to inadequate sanitation and a lack of essential menstrual hygiene facilities and awareness. This affects approximately 120 million menstruating adolescents. Tragically, nearly 60,000 cases of cervical cancer deaths are reported annually in India, with two-thirds attributed to poor menstrual hygiene practices. Menstruation, once a taboo, has led to inhumane practices that put women's health at risk. Many girls resort to using alternatives like rags and used sanitary pads, which can lead to fungal and bacterial infections. These women are at high risk of contracting pathological leukorrhea and cervical cancer. Societal patriarchy, gender inequality, and high illiteracy rates contribute to poor menstrual practices, creating significant gaps in women's development. The issue of menstrual hygiene is not limited to India but is a global concern, affecting women and girls worldwide. It is exacerbated by factors like poverty, lack of education, and societal norms.

OUR ACTION

Our mission is to provide sustainable menstrual health and hygiene solutions to underprivileged women. We not only distribute free sanitary pads and personal hygiene kits but also focus on educating women about sustainable menstrual practices. We have installed over 500 Sanitary Pad Vending Machines and incinerators in girls' schools, making these products accessible. Our initiative has been implemented in seven states and has directly benefited over one million women. Activities under the Initiative:

  1. Creating awareness about the prevention of life-threatening chronic diseases, including STDs.
  2. Providing basic knowledge about menstrual and personal hygiene.
  3. Organizing sensitization camps with sessions on good touch and bad touch, addressing sexual abuse.
  4. Addressing mental health and promoting overall well-being awareness among young females.
  5. Sensitizing women about malnutrition, anaemia, the importance of a nutritious diet, and a healthy lifestyle through sustainable living practices.
  6. Sensitizing women about malnutrition, anaemia, the importance of a nutritious diet, and a healthy lifestyle through sustainable living practices.
  7. Raising awareness about gender-based violence, discrimination, and crimes against women.
  8. Promoting family planning as a critical aspect of societal well-being.
  9. Encouraging women to adopt environment-friendly and sustainable menstrual practices by providing menstrual cups and sensitization.

THE IMPACT

Our approach is transforming lives and communities:

  1. Implementation of safe and sustainable menstrual hygiene practices has reduced pelvic infections and infertility risk.
  2. Decreased chances of urinary tract infections (UTI), leukocoria, STDs, and other transferable diseases associated with poor hygiene.
  3. Improved awareness among women about health, health-seeking behaviour, and prescribed healthcare practices, including addressing nutritional anaemia.
  4. Enhanced maternal and child health practices, safe motherhood, safe sex, and birth spacing, leading to reduced maternal and child morbidity and mortality.
  5. Reduced chances of spreading infectious diseases within the community.
  6. Implementation of sustainable menstrual hygiene practices promotes a more sustainable environment.
