As GVT have started working closely with the women on their health related issues through safe sanitary napkins in rural Bharuch districts. Most of the girls, women do not use the sanitary pads and uses the clothes or some other ways during their menstrual periods and they come across with different health related problems. In the initial stage of our intervention our volunteers have identified that most of the girls and women are using clothes which is not properly washed or unhygienic. They do not share about their health related issues with anyone and just bear with it.
There are numbers of problems faced by the girls in the initial phase of menstrual cycle, later they just gets used to it. Our volunteers and Field Officers, are now in the phase of creating awareness about the hygienic practices through using the sanitary pads and how it becomes difficult to use the clothes and other ways.
In schools, community and wherever possible our volunteers and Field Officers are going to create awareness about the same, many girls are coming up with a positive and accepting the hygienic ways for the menstrual cycle but many are still not coming up, they just feel shy to talk about such issues. In some community it is also getting difficult for our staff to reach for such issues.
As the survey said out of 100 women only 20 to 30 women are taking care about hygienic practices during menstrual and using sanitary napkins the rest 70 to 80 women are still not ready to use it because of social taboos and other rigid culture. GVT is trying its best to create awareness and to create young leaders for positive change in the society. Let us come together to make it happen.
