Summary

70% Indian women don't have access to appropriate menstrual hygiene products & are forced to use unsafe alternatives like sand, husk, dry leaves, rags & newspapers. Within orphanages, the situation is grim & many girls do not have the knowledge nor means. CSA empowers adolescent girls in orphanages to feel confident & secure during these days by providing them with menstrual hygiene kits. We also conduct menstrual hygiene awareness sessions on hygiene, usage of sanitary napkins & safe disposal

Challenge

Menstruation is one thing which almost every woman has to deal with. Every month. 300 million Indian women and girls do not have access to menstrual hygiene products which forces them to use unsafe alternatives. A lot of girls even drop out of school when they start menstruating due to lack of necessary supplies. In the absence of education about this issue, menstruation and menstrual hygiene have become taboo topics in India today.

Solution

The vision of this project is to bring good menstrual hygiene to young girls at orphanages. As a part of this project, we will be providing sanitary napkins to underprivileged girls at orphanages. We will also conduct education/awareness programs about personal hygiene, usage of sanitary napkins and its safe disposal to empowers girls to make informed decisions about how can they manage their menstruation.

Long-Term Impact

Through this project, we aim to rescue 1300 young girls at orphanages who are forced to use unsafe alternatives during their periods. This project will not only make a positive difference to the lives of girls living in orphanages but also help us in breaking the taboo around periods.
