RISE Women: Be Periods Positive
(REALISTIC AND INOVATIVE SOLUTIONS FOR EMPOWERMENT)
The campaign, ‘RISE Women: Be Periods Positive’, is based on Period Positivity. As most of country is poverty stricken and that results in poor hygiene and sanitary practices. This also means the lack of access to sanitary napkins which makes the women vulnerable to several infections and ultimately to lifelong diseases. Our ultimate goal is to provide the destitute women with basic hygiene and sanitary practices.
MAIN GOALS OF THE CAMPAIGN
- To provide information regarding menstrual health.
- Providing sanitary pads to deal with menstrual problems.
- Giving information on how to deal menstrual problems and correct ways to dispose the sanitary pads.
- To empower the nation by empowering women.
SURVEYS AND DISTRIBUTION OF SANITARY PADS
We have taken it upon ourselves to provide sanitary pads to women, but also conduct surveys and inquire what are the problems being faced by them and how we can help them solve these problems. So far, we have covered major slum areas in the Tri-City and provided them with sanitary pads.
