Menstrual Hygiene Education
In partnership with local community organizations, The Desai Foundation provided menstrual hygiene education to women in Baruch and Valsad districts in Gujarat, India. Through our various programs, women and girls in rural areas were able to learn about menstruation, ranging from what are menstruation cycles, to the proper use of menstrual hygiene products. In total, we were able to conduct awareness sessions for over 3500 women and girls living in these two districts. We also provided training to over 100 women on ways to distribute sanitary pads and disseminate information on menstrual hygiene and management in their respective communities. By conducting such training sessions, we strive to eradicate stigmas surrounding menstruation in remote, rural regions of India.
