Yes, I am in my period and I am healthy

By Jyoti Singh | Senior Consultant

Yes, I am in my period
Yes, I am in my period

Dear Friends,

Greetings from the Indian Dreams Foundation!

We are pleased to come up with the story of a remarkable change in the life of our beneficiaries of the menstrual hygiene awareness project.


Rani (name changed), the student of class 8. After getting training on Menstrual Hygiene Management in her school, she discussed the information with her mother and conveyed the message to her neighborhood and friends. Rani is 15 years old girl who belongs to a slum area of Agra. Belonging to the most under-developed area she never knows the best practices of Menstrual Hygiene, even she feel hesitate to talk about periods.

In the interview with her, Rani said “I used to throw the used sanitary cloths and pads in the open but when IDF team shared information during my school workshop then I came to know about the proper practices of Menstrual Hygiene. Now I throw my used sanitary pads in the dustbin after wrapped in the newspaper”. She added, “I was ashamed a few years ago when I got periods and never discussed it with anyone. But now I proudly say Yes I am in my periods and I am healthy. I feel so proud to be a part of the IDF’s Peer Club of my School and spread knowledge among the group of girls”.

Rani said that she was shy when discussing menstrual hygiene issues with her friends but now their welcoming attitude has enhanced her confidence.

IDF has planned to partner with more than 20 schools by the end of 2024 and target more than 3000 school girls to spread awareness towards menstrual hygiene management and well-being. There are many more Ranis who need proper knowledge and education on their reproductive health. Your generous support can change the lives of many more school girls.


Thanks for your support and encouragement!



Regards,
Team IDF
