This is an initiative to enhance commitment of social responsibility among individuals on issues of hygienic living of socially and economically disadvantaged women and adolescent girls.
Campaign Sangini is an initiative to ensure acceptability of ‘Safe & Hygienic’ options among socially and economically disadvantaged women and girls by making samples available over a period of time in order to facilitate behavioural change and first-hand experience of difference between unhygienic to hygienic living.
Menstruation has been mostly considered as a curse among socially and economically disadvantaged families.
A large number of socially & economically disadvantaged women in urban slums and rural areas do not use ‘Safe & Hygienic’ products as they cannot afford or they do not feel it is required.
Some survey shows that approx 39 % of women of urban area, including well educated families, are living with symptoms of genital infection or reproductive tract infection, all due to poor sanitary behaviour during menstrual period.
Adolescent girls who would be starting their family life in the coming years live under the specter of life-long disease. If an adolescent grows up practicing unhygienic behaviour and is consequently infected, then the well-being of a family in 90% of the rural and 60% of urban families could be merely a dream.
Most women consider the presence of Reproductive Tract Infection or Genital Infections to be normal, something women have to live with, and do not appreciate its serious implications.
When cotton sarees became costly by default disadvantaged women shifted to using synthetic sarees and life of cotton cloth is much less than synthetic cloth and isn’t easy to maintain. A torn portion of this sari is used as a cloth as menstruation pad with filling comprising some of the most unhygienic agriculture waste like ashes or husk sand. This is a big source of infection.
Due to lack of affordability and acceptability of ‘Safe & Hygienic’ options, many women suffer from infections from the start of their sexual life that affect their whole life.
Should the women of the nation, an important source of inspiration, be left deprived from facilities due to unfavorable financial and social circumstances?
We should just stand by as mute spectators and turn a blind eye to what is happening around ? All we have to do is understand and be sensitive.
Join hands with “Campaign Sangini” by donating for ‘Safe & Hygienic’ options to ensure availability among socially and economically disadvantaged women and adolescent girls for the well-being of a family as well as for the most resourceful member of the society.
You can also contribute by distributing sanitary napkins to economically and socially disadvantaged women and adolescent girls directly around your residence and/or workplace as per your convenience. Due to prevailing taboo with the issues, it is advisable to distribute through females only.
But, there’s also a painful truth curtained behind this mesmerizing beauty.
We should be thankful to God who did not provide a chance to maximum Indians to understand the actual story behind Taj Mahal, “otherwise” we would feel ashamed and finding Taj Mahal at every corner of the House in India?
