Background:

India, even after 75 years of independence, has a taboo on the most basic and natural body function – Female Menstruation. At this time they need a safe environment that offers  protection  and  guidance  to  ensure  their  basic  health,  well-being  and  educational  opportunity  is  realized. Yet, millions of girls in India are disempowered by the simple biological process of menstruation.

The problems faced by women include:

  • Inadequate menstrual protection makes adolescent girls miss 5 days of school in a month.
  • Women are barred from entering temples and kitchens at such times.
  • Instead of Sanitary Pads, women resort to shocking alternatives like unsanitised cloth, ashes and husk sand.
  • As a result, are more prone to Reproductive Tract Infection and Cervical Cancer
