THE STORY:

The Sanitary Pad Campaign is self-funded and collects sanitary pads through connecting with other youth who are motivated to preserve the dignity of young women. Statistics vary when highlighting the number of young girls whose lack of access to sanitary pads lead them to missing school and therefore receiving a different standard of education to their male counterparts. According to UNICEF 1 in 10 school-age Indian girls do not attend school during menstruation, or drop out at puberty because of the lack of clean and private sanitation facilities in schools. . Others, such as those whose protest interrupted Health Minister saying that “7 million girls” miss school each month because they don’t have access to or money for sanitary products. The statistics are staggering and Activators across the country believe that change begins with them. They know that girls need all the support possible to stay in school and they are dedicated to assisting in the best way they can. “A few years ago I was encouraged by a story I read on Ground Up about a girl who didn’t have money for pads and had to use rags and newspaper. I realized that I needed to start making a change. We did research within the community on why girls were dropping out of school and found out that for many of them it was because of their menstruation. They would be too embarrassed to go to school because they simply could not afford sanitary pads”, says To contribute, please contact: goodcause2017@gmail.com 8686900800
