Ruchi and her fellow classmates studied at a government school in their area. But every month, they would miss their classes due to periods. This lack of access to menstrual hygiene products affected their education.
With Proud To Be Me project, we were able to install a sanitary napkin dispenser at the school. We also educated young girls about menstrual health and how to use menstrual hygiene products.
This created a ripple effect in the area, with more and more girls learning about menstrual health, hygiene and products which helped them lead a better life.
