Menstrual Hygiene Project
To address the issues of school absenteeism and lack of awareness (leading to unhygienic practices) amongst high school [adolescent] girls in rural Karnataka. Trained volunteers conduct awareness sessions, and distribute sponsored sanitary napkins to these girls.
The impact and positive response to the Menstrual Hygiene project in 2010-11 led to interest this year from corporates like Qualcomm and the likes of Rotary, Bangalore, for sponsorship of sanitary napkins. With this support, we should be able to reach out to a lot more adolescent girls in rural Karnataka this year.
