Menstrual Hygiene Day advocates for a world in which every woman and girl can manage her menstruation hygienically, in privacy, in safety and with dignity – where ever she is.
Young Girls in Khichdipur, Delhi, aspire to be IPS Officers, doctors ...A far off dream?
Soothe Healthcare took the first step towards encouraging these 80 girls to realize their dreams, by conducting Menstrual Health & Hygiene Management (MHM) sessions during National Women's Health Week (May 11 - 17), in partnership with HLFPPT.
"Give me a glass of milk too!" Girls claim their right to be treated equal to their brothers.
During NWHW, in the Menstrual Health and Hygiene Management (MHM) session at the Anganwadi in Harizan Basti, Kondli, girls (11-18 year olds) clearly stated they want their mothers to treat them equal to their brothers.
In matters of nutrition and other opportunities most of these girls experienced discrimination within their homes.
The panel of experts present, encouraged the girls to speak to their mothers on the importance of nutritious diet for girls.
Soothe Healthcare along with its partner HLFPPT also educated them on the importance of good health and hygiene, and distributed Paree MHM education guide booklets as well as Paree Sanitary Pads to these girls.
