Menstrual Hygiene is an issue that every girl and woman has to deal with once she enters adolescence around the age of 12 and until she reaches the menopause somewhere in her 40's. Overall, a woman spends approximately 2,100 days menstruating which is equivalent to almost six years of her life. Menstruation is a monthly occurrence that requires access to appropriate materials and facilities,without which,females suffer from poor menstrual hygiene which restricts their movement & self confidence.


Providing Clean and Separate Toilet with Napkin Incinerator especially for Mensuration Girls in Schools, Hostels, Colleges. It was not Included in regular Toilets and treated as a Special Room. In India 23% drop out after they start menstruating. Girls' education is everyone's issue; when girls get educated their future earnings grow.Menstruation does not mean shame and stigma, it's a healthy body function. 68% of women and girls in India have no access to sanitary menstrual materials.

Long-Term Impact

1) Clean and Separate Toilet encourage girls to stay in Hostels, Schools, Colleges, etc. when Mensuration starts. 2) Improved water and sanitation facilities in school girls' toilets including the incinerator for the safe disposal of soiled napkins have shown its impact on the School attendance. 3) When girls have their periods, they need more than basic sanitation facilities - they need locking, single-gender bathrooms with clean, running water and a place to change clothes.
