Menstrual Health Management
It’s not uncommon for women to talk about menstruation with code words, considering the taboo surrounding this subject and the restrictions placed on girls and women when they are menstruating. LENS facilitated workshops for awareness on the matter to help break the myths surrounding menstruation and debunk the taboo attached to it. With the help of Raindrop Foundation and partner NGO Samarpan, a workshop on menstrual health was held at Yamuna Pushta School to spread awareness among the students and community inhabitants.
In a highly interactive session, a big group of women and young girls participated in the workshop and learned many things about menstrual and personal hygiene. A question-answer session was also conducted to clarify any doubts and myths related to menstrual hygiene. Underclothes, Sanitary napkins, menstrual cups and tasty/delicious refreshments were also distributed to them.
