Menstruation is India is a taboo. Annually 23 million girls drop out of school due to lack of Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM);12 billion pads are generated as waste by just 36% women who use it. Lack of MHM can also lead to cervical cancer.
We provide biodegradable sanitary pads to poor tribal school girls in India. Focussed Group Discussions are conducted & girls are encouraged to speak up amongst peers to break menstrual stigma; healthy behaviour is celebrated through local dances & songs. The endeavor reduces school dropout rate, empowers girls about their health rights and prevents environmental degradation due to sanitary pads waste.
