“Education about Menstruation Changes Everything.” – Theme for Menstrual Hygiene Day, May 28, 2017.

An awareness program was organized by the community organizer in Sarai Noorudinpur village, Allahabad to observe “Menstrual Hygiene Day”.The #CO spread the message using relevant posters, videos which highlighted the importance of menstrual hygiene followed by a group discussion.

Our CO who is also the tailoring SME intends to give this product training to other members of the SHG, as post-training income generation activity.
