RAISE FUNDS FOR MENSTRUAL HEALTH AWARENESS & ONGOING EDUCATIONAL NEED AT BHARTI FOUNDATION SUPPORTED RURAL SCHOOLS.
Hello & welcome to my page! By way of introduction, I am Aryaman Gulati, a 17 year old teen studying at The British School, New Delhi.
India is such a diverse nation. For all the attributes our diversity offers, it also brings with it evident disparity.
As part of my community service endeavor, I have been engaged in teaching & interacting Class 5th &6th students from far flung schools in rural India supported by the Satya Bharti Foundation. What struck me the most through my interactions, is that sadly, even the most basic amenities that we take for granted, are almost an elusive luxury for these students.
This has propelled me into championing a cause that is very important but often ignored and brushed under the carpet – MENSTRUAL HEALTH of children in rural India.
Menstruation is one of the most natural and basic biological processes. And yet there is so much taboo and lack of information and support around it. Menstrual health impacts the physical, emotional, and social well-being of individuals who experience menstruation. It is very important to maintain good menstrual health to promote overall well-being.
My effort is to promote and normalize menstrual health especially in rural areas for students and to raise funds for installing sanitary pad dispensation machines at Satya Bharti Foundation supported schools.
To increase awareness at rural schools, my project will also involve highlighting the following:
Education and awareness: Schools to provide education and awareness on menstrual health and hygiene to students, teachers, and parents through open classroom discussions, workshops, and information sessions;
Make sanitary products accessible: Schools to ensure sanitary products are available and accessible to all students through dispensation machines together with tips on environmentally safe & responsible disposal.
Ensure privacy and dignity: Schools should ensure that students have access to private and safe spaces to change and dispose of sanitary products.
Address cultural stigma and taboos: address wide spread cultural taboos and misconceptions around menstruation in our society and promote positive attitudes towards menstruation by making this a collaborative project involving parents and community members through community meetings, parent-teacher associations, and other engagement strategies.
Remember menstrual health and hygiene is not a one-time event, but an ongoing process that requires continuous education, awareness, and support. By taking these steps, we can collectively help schools in rural India to address the challenges of menstrual health and hygiene and promote positive attitudes towards menstruation.
TOGETHER WE CAN BRING ABOUT THE CHANGE WE WANT TO SEE IN OUR SOCIETY AND MAKE PROJECT PINK A ROARING SUCCESS!!
