Canada based Birth Control teams up with Unipads for hosting awareness on Menstrual Hygiene and distribute Free Reusable Sanitary Pads
Life is all about moments.
Moments when we smile together and those moments when we make others smile together. But while doing good you go beyond smiling and find true joy in supporting people whose voice needs to be heard by us.
In the same spirit of doing social good, this time Unipads India joined hands with Canada based Birth Control, for:
“FREE Distribution of Reusable Sanitary Pads to 1000 Underprivileged Girls and Women”.
Oh Yes. 1000 Underprivileged women living in the far-off suburbs of Ahmedabad City of Gujarat.
In September 2021, Unipads India and Saath NGO came together to breathe life into this mission. We reached out to various locations for hosting sessions on Menstrual Hygiene and Management, and also conduct distribution of reusable sanitary pads among those women
After all, even if a girl/women happens to be the daughter of hard-working daily wage earners, she deserves all the rights to have knowledge about Menstrual Hygiene Issues. That’s exactly where Unipads India reaches out to empower them from rural and tribal areas of India.
Every new initiative undertaken by Unipads India gifts an opportunity to our volunteers— “To make a positive difference in the lives of women and girls, who don’t have access to menstrual hygiene products”.
For 15 days straight our teams of 35 volunteers visited these 5 suburbs-
In all those visits, the women volunteers always had the media kit and other items that were needed to demonstrate information about various kinds of menstrual hygiene products available in the markets. Plus, the young girls and women were also taught about good hygiene practices to be followed while going through periods.
We even answered so many questions from these young minds and made them comfortable to share more queries about MHM issues. Here we also want to pass our special thanks to the volunteers who supported us during our sessions and have extended support to us by connecting the girlsand women with us whenever the they need any kind of help in future.
Around 200 girls and women from each suburb participated in the sessions and in this way, we touched lives of 1000 women by presenting them with Free Unipads Kit that has 4 Cloth based Sanitary Pads of different lengths.
Moreover, these reusable pads are made of breathable fabric and covered with a special layer that makes it odor-free for all the time while being used. And these pads can be easily washed with normal water by gentle hands for a stain-free appearance and repeated use.
But here comes another Big Surprise.
This time our volunteers came forward and took the full onus of conducting this initiative. They came up with a plan to visit all the 5 Suburbs and successfully finish the free distribution within just 15 days.
Seems like a Big Challenge. Isn’t it?
Well, we are proud to say that they made it.
Hats off to their teamwork and co-ordination that 1000 women, now own a Unipads Reusable Sanitary Pads Kit, that will help them for close to 12 Months.
The force behind this whole initiative is Birth Control.
Birth Control is transforming the lives of women by providing them right medical consultation to control birth in a proper way. They are on a mission of female empowerment by consulting women over pregnancy prevention, benefits and side effects of options available in the markets.
Unipads India feels proud to have collaborated with Birth Control, that sponsored this CSR Activity and empowered our efforts to bring awareness about Menstrual Hygiene and Management (MHM) among the needy girls and women of marginalized communities of India.
So, is it the end of a journey?
Haha. Let’s get up and say it out aloud …miles to go before I sleep. Miles to go before I sleep.
Unipads India is actively collaborating with various organizations that are coming ahead to help the underprivileged girls and women of marginalized communities.
