Menstrual Hygiene Management Awareness Program

Arrange seminar on menstruation, discussion, establish a pad corner

When a girl becomes 10 or 13 age, suddenly she experience a blood flow with her urine. This incident is known as "Menstruation". According to the weather & food habit in Bangladesh, mostly 10 years old girl has got this experience. But unfortunately most of our girls from poor family are using too much unhygienic piece of clothes during their period. In many areas they are using dry leaves. These are totally unhygienic. In this event most of girls students absent their school. As a result her education life is being damaged. We arrange a joint pilot event with 3 Rotary Clubs is to break the taboo of our school girls and to make aware the girls to use sanitary pad during their menstruation. We arrange a seminar & open discussion with girls students where our doctor provide suggestion to girls on personal hygiene. After the seminar we established a Pad Corner in school. By this pad corner service the school girls takes her necessary units of pad from school before their menstruation.
