2. Distribution of reusable sanitary pads to Van Gujjar and Taungya women,
3. Conduct trainings on stitching and sewing cloth pads at home,

Travelled for more than 3000+ kms to reach forest communities in these challenging times. Enabling access and awareness by engagement to health. We carry on our work to reach our people!
Conducting training on stitching a sanitary pad turned out to be successful as a few of them started by stitching their own pads. These young girls plan to stitch more and spread awareness on menstrual hygiene management.
