We are excited to inform our Global Giving Community that on March 8th, 2019, we installed a sanitary napkin vending machine in the girl’s bathroom of our school in Untdi, Valsad district of Gujarat, India. Additionally, we gave each female student a pack of Asani pads to encourage the usage of sanitary napkins and always prepare them when they are not in school.
Each year on May 1st, we launch #PledgeYourPeriod Campaign. It’s a month-long campaign to promote dialogues on menstrual hygiene and management, and helping to eradicate the cultural stigma surrounding periods. The campaign will culminate on May 28th, Menstrual Hygiene Day. Until now, we have more than 15 pledges from our friends and donors. We are also organizing a Period Party on May 29th in NYC, bringing together men and women who have contributed to the campaign and share their experiences on how they felt to speak publicly on menstruation.
