Beacon of sunshine!
In rural communities, many girls depend on handmade sanitary remedies, like loading dirty socks containing mud and binding them round their midrib to soak period fluid or removing old pieces of fabric and that use them to retain menstrual fluid. Such clothing scraps were washed within the household restricting sunlight exposure due to the shame appended to the period. These cycles are unhygienic and unsanitary, expanding odds of contamination, raising the risk of infection, as well as hampering daily activities.
Every problem has a solution
A year ago, the schoolchildren sensed a beam of expectation when Balamitra Foundation introduced an audience-funded project to deliver menstrual sanitary packets to students in 8th -10th grade at ZP Higher secondary School (ZPHS), Billalavalasa. The Andhra NGO has issued approximately 150 packets. By offering menstrual sanitation kits to the feminine girls now, Balamitra is strengthening their schoolgirl experience as they don't need to miss school for a couple of days consistently. Additionally, Balamitra conducts a committee meeting with the students and their moms about the significance of keeping up with feminine cleanliness.
The shame around the monthly cycle is probably the greatest test looked at by social associations intending to enable young girls in provincial Andhra Pradesh. At the point when they tried to move toward the school, they realized that there were high quantities of truants among school-going youngsters in higher evaluations, which ultimately led to dropout rates.
The major hurdle was to change the social mindset.
The taboos of hygiene products by speaking to and guiding family, "explained Chandrika Kanumuri, Director of the Balamitra Foundation.”Our purpose is to deliver compassion & motivation to Indian youth. This year, for the feminine cleanliness pack venture, two volunteers from Visakhapatnam are driving the path in bringing issues to light for swarm financing," says Chandrika.
