Jay Jeyendran's Fundraiser:

Disposable Feminine Sanitary Pads

THE STORY:

In Sri Lanka currently about 52% of the female population is of reproductive age and many of them stay silent about their menstruation due to cultural taboos and a sense of shame. Even after the end of civil strife and tsunami many young women from the affected areas do not have the revenue to support themselves and mostly use makeshift feminine sanitary towels which may cause infections, and do not provide the protection needed. To help these women and others our Sustainable Livelihood Development Fund, a non-political, not-for-profit company in Sri Lanka (SLDFund.org) and has identified a low-cost machine that can produce 1600 disposable feminine sanitary pads per day and cost around $8,985 to install. Such a unit will also create a sustainable livelihood for women and yield a significant profit. One such unit will employ 5 women and produce 200 packets each having 8 Feminine Sanitary Pads per day at a cost of 0.26 cents per packet. We estimate a minimum of three such units for a total of $26,955 are needed to meet our goal. These disposable pads will be marketed to low/middle income women and distributed free of charge to all poor women especially in the affected areas. These low cost, hygienic, sanitary pads will give dignity to women which will result in improved health outcomes over current unhygienic practices. We are very optimistic about successfully implementing this project, which is why we are requesting you to fund this charitable endeavour
