CAHF is committed to the empowerment of women and girls, raising awareness about women's health and giving them the opportunity to continue their education or work without any discomfort, embarrassment or the loss of dignity.
Think about school going girls who are now locked up in homes, women in quarantine centres and working women, who are also in need of vital information related to menstrual hygiene and access to sanitation facilities. In many places, shared toilets make it challenging for menstruating girls and women to manage menstrual hygiene.
Menstruation and menstrual practices still face many social, cultural, and religious restrictions which are a big barrier in the path of menstrual hygiene management. In many parts of our country, especially in rural areas, girls are not prepared and aware about menstruation, so they face many difficulties and challenges at home, schools and work. Girls and women have very less or no knowledge about reproductive tract infections caused due to ignorance of personal hygiene during menstruation time. Many women do not have access to sanitary products and if they do, they cannot afford to buy them.
Your contribution will go a long way in helping to improve the overall health and wellbeing of these girls and women in our underprivilege communities and schools.
Thanking you kindly
