Empowering women by eradicating Period Shame @ ₹750 only
The Impact Guru Foundation seeks to bridge the gap between young girls who require hygiene products and the Menstrual Hygiene Management (MHM) facilities that are capable of providing them. The initiative is motivated to raise awareness and end period shame by making vital supplies accessible for young girls and women in slums, orphanages, and rural areas.
In our society, shame, stigma, and false knowledge regarding periods prevent the young girls and women in India from having open discussions, leaving them subject to gender discrimination, marginalization, and health issues.
Moreover, the usage of make-do pads stuffed with hay, ash, mud, and even husk, gives way to a long list of vaginal infections and reproductive health issues that can prove to be fatal if left untreated. Recognizing period poverty and ending period shame, therefore, is the need of the hour.
To help create change, the Impact Guru Foundation’s on-ground team organizes various awareness campaigns and distributes Sanitary Kits to girls and women in need. The kit includes enough hygiene products to support them for 13 cycles in a year with 12 pads each (total 156 pads/year) along with which, we also provide sessions on behavioural change communications and related counselling to parents, solidifying the outcome wherein the girls can resume their education all at just ₹ 750/ annum.
