Menstrual Hygiene has remained a taboo subject in this country. Although, it is a normal biological process, yet it seems that we are not at ease around this particular subject. Menstrual hygiene has been subjected to dogmas and superstitions for centuries now.
We, at UPAY, are determined to change this thought process along with initiating a drive to provide sanitary napkins to the girls. Along with that, we also educate the girls and their parents regarding menstrual hygiene and the best practices involved therein.
The funds raised from this campaign will be used to provide sanitary napkins to girls and women.
Cost of sanitary napkin for one girl per month: Rs.16
Annual cost: Rs 192
No of beneficiaries across 4 centers: 183
Total funds required: Rs 35000
