THE BACKGROUND

Did you know that only 12% of women in India use sanitary napkins?

Did you know that 88% of them opt for alternatives like dirty cloth, ashes, and husk?

Did you know that Reproductive Tract Infections are 70% more common among them?

Menstruation and menstrual practices still face social, cultural, and religious restrictions which are a big barrier in the path of menstrual hygiene management. In many parts of India, especially in rural areas girls are not prepared and aware about menstruation and they face many difficulties and challenges at home, schools, and workplaces. Needs and requirements of the adolescent girls and women are ignored. Many of them resort to unhygienic alternatives which can be very detrimental to health.



THE SOLUTION 


The solution is to provide reusable sanitary napkins to these underprivileged women & girls across Mumbai and surrounding districts. The kits are biodegradable, reusable with a lifespan of 2.5- 3 years and economically feasible.

It is an Insertion based cloth pad model which has two main components-
1) Shield -which has the wings and button at the corners to hold it together on the panty. Shield is made up of cotton and a layer of PUL within which prevents any leakage.
2) Liners- These are made up of cotton flannel which is a highly absorbent material. These are inserted inside the shield and multiple (upto 3) can be inserted depending upon the flow.



JUST INR 2500 WILL IMPACT 10 GIRLS/WOMEN FOR 2 YEARS. EACH MENSTRUAL HYGIENE PACK COSTS INR 250 INCL DISTRIBUTION COSTS.


Reusable pads are a much better alternative for the environment, individual and which is why we are using them for this initiative. These are stitched by underprivileged women thus serving as a source of livelihood for them.

ABOUT ME

My name is Aditi. I am 15 years old and in Grade 10 at the EuroSchool, Airoli. I am very passionate about helping others, especially those who are in need of desperate need of aid, live a healthy and comfortable life. Some of my hobbies are playing football and reading. Personally for me, putting smiles on the faces of the underprivileged makes me very happy and proud.

For girls and women from financially weak backgrounds, access to sanitary napkins is a luxury. They often resort to unhygienic alternatives which can be very hazardous to health. Sanitary napkins are a basic necessity for every woman. The cost of providing reusable sanitary napkins which would last for 2 years is only INR 250.

Through this campaign, I intend to give them a menstrual hygiene kit that is cost-effective, lasts long, and is not too bulky. The Hygiene kit consist of 2 regular shields, 6 regular liners, 1 large shield, 2 large liners, 1 Instruction manual, 1 ziplock bag and 1 drawstring bag to hold everything together. These are stitched by women from low-income homes thus serving as a source of livelihood for them.

I request all of you to support my campaign. Let's come together and do our bit to transform lives. Remember, your contribution will help girls and women feel safe and be healthy.

How does crowdfunding work?

Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.

It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such pooling of funds. You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries.

Updates have been committed to after the campaign ends.
