SOCIAL CHANGE THROUGH EMOTIONAL WELLNESS

Menstruation is a normal and healthy biological process for girls. Yet, it is a topic that people are embarrassed to talk about, and is treated as something shameful or dirty. Stigma, taboos and myths prevent adolescent girls from the opportunity to learn about menstruation and develop healthy habits.

WE BELIEVE that it is imperative to make girls aware of the science behind menstruation, which can help prevent any kind of pelvic inflammatory diseases and infections and to remove all the taboos and myths about periods.
