RutuChakra– Celebrating and Embracing Womanhood

MY CAMPAIGN AIMS TO RAISE FUNDS TO SUPPLY FREE SANITARY PADS FOR A YEAR TO TWENTY GIRLS AND WOMEN FROM UNDERPRIVILEGED FAMILIES. IT COSTS JUST 1000 INR PER ANNUM PER PERSON.


LET'S HELP WOMEN & GIRLS LIVE A HEALTHY LIFE WITH DIGNITY

Menstrual Hygiene is vital to the health, well-being, dignity, and empowerment of women and girls. However, the issue of menstrual hygiene has been neglected in our society. Today in India, over 88% of the menstruating women do not have access to sanitary napkins and many more do not have any information regarding the same. Cultural perceptions and myths have etched their way into our society over the years and have impacted woman in a negative way, often leading to misinformation and the promotion of dangerous menstrual hygiene practices. Moreover, In the absence of these napkins, many resort to using leaves, ash, bark, etc. which could potentially lead to several health problems

Menstruation is a natural biological process, yet, it remains a sensitive topic in our society. Cultural perceptions and myths have etched their way into our society over the years and have impacted woman in a negative way. This can often lead to misinformation and the promotion of dangerous menstrual hygiene practices. 

Through RutuChakra, we intend to make a positive change: to make an effort towards embedding measures within society to promote menstrual hygiene. This is entirely a youth driven initiative. By supplying sanitary napkins to the underprivileged girls and conducting workshops in multiple areas so that women can practice safe menstruation. I believe that every menstruating girl/women has the right to safe menstrual products and knowledge on the same.

So, please support our cause so that we can reach out to more and more girls / women and help them menstruate in dignity. #menstruationmatters #makeapositivechange


ABOUT ME & THE CAMPAIGN                 

My name is Srivishnu.R. I'm a student of NPS HSR, studying in grade 11. On learning about this initiative started by my friend Sanjana, I came to know about an issue that is prevalent in society and needs to be erdaicated through education and awareness. Hygiene is the fundamental right of every human being. Menstrual hygiene is a concept that should be in the minds of every individual. The wholistic approach of this campaign in eradicating social stigma and spreading awareness about this- very important issue gives me the opportunity to do something for society that actually makes a difference. I fully support this campaign in the hope that my efforts will help improve the lives of many in an impactful manner.

HELP ME RAISE FUNDS TO PROVIDE SANITARY NAPKINS TO TWENTY(20) UNDERPRIVILEGED GIRLS AND WOMEN FOR A YEAR.(COSTS 1000 INR PER ANNUM PER GIRL). AS A GROUP WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO RAISE FUNDS TO IMPACT 500 GIRLS AND WOMEN.

By supporting my cause, you are helping me provide the necessary menstrual products and education on the same (through workshops) to girls who otherwise would not be able to afford it. You would be giving them a chance to practise safe menstruation and understand the changes taking place in their body; A chance to speak about this in a society where there is a social stigma and this is regarded as a sensitive topic.

Helping one person might not change the world but it can change the world for that one person. So I urge you to give your support. A simple act of kindness can have a profound impact on someone else's life and with your help I can truly make a difference here. After all, no act of kindness, however small, is ever wasted

WHAT HAS RUTUCHAKRA DONE TILL DATE?

Before taking forward this crowdfunding campaign, RutuChakra had already initiated a fundraiser and conducted a workshop in ThayiMane (Children’s Home). This took place in the month of January, 2018.The Fundraiser was largely spread across the school, apartment and social circles and we received an AMAZING response. Through the funds generated, we were able to supply sanitary napkins for 1 year for ~50 girls.

 The workshop touched upon :

  • General health and hygiene.
  • Safe menstruation.
  • Addressed questions / myths / concerns relating to this topic.
  • Safe disposal of sanitary napkins

 It was conducted by Ms. Sunita Shekokar (Gynaecologist)

The girls were also given health and hygiene kits consisting of items of basic personal hygiene.

FAQs

What are the crowdfunding charges and the cost to support one girl/woman for a year?

Fueladream charges 10% as crowdfunding charges. There is a payment gateway fee of 2% (for both the Indian and foreign gateway) plus a GST component of 2.16%. This adds up to 14.16%. There is also an initial fee of 3000 INR which is being waived for us

There are several different types of sanitary napkins that we aim to provide. This depends entirely upon the interest of each organisation we work with. The cost break down is  for one girl’s requirements for 1 year. Including crowdfunding fees the cost is only INR 1000 per annum.

When do I get the receipts?

It takes up to 3 weeks after the campaign is closed for the monies to be transferred to Rotary Bangalore Indiranagar with whom we are partnering. The receipts will start getting processed about 3-4 weeks AFTER that and will be sent to you directly.

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 a 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. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation.
