My name is Pranit Shetty. I am in Grade 9 student at the Podar International School, Thane.
I am doing this campaign to help raise awareness and funds to provide hygiene kits to girls from poor homes who study in govt schools across Maharashtra. The hygiene kit consists of sanitary pads (a years supply), undergarments, tissues, and other hygiene products. These kits are distributed by the NGO - Habitat for Humanity, India.
Most of these girls do not have access to even a sanitary pad and are unaware of how they should manage menstrual hygiene. This leads to a loss of confidence, dignity, and poor attendance at schools. Many of the girls do not have access to even an undergarment. Shocking but true.
The cost of this hygiene kit (including distributing it) is just INR 1100.
Help me support 15 or more girls by raising INR 16500 or more. Together we can help transform their lives. If I raise more I can help change the lives of more girls. Not having sanitary pads or undergarments should not be a reason for girls to drop out of school.
Our efforts will help more girls in schools across Maharashtra, "Stay at school".
