We're on a journey to make an impact among a group of girls and to reaffirm every menstruator's right to bleed with dignity.
We work with adolescent girls from urban-slums for menstrual hygiene, health and nutrition management; and women from economically stable backgrounds to promote sustainable menstruation. We strive towards achieving SDG 3, 4, 5 and 12.
We’ve run several social media and on-ground campaigns, participated in exhibitions and conferences and hosted meet-ups and poetry events across cities to spread awareness and ignite conversations.
We organize menstual hygiene session for adolescent girls. But no preaching! We believe in using art, music and fun games to get the message across.
For Menstrual Hygiene Day 2018, we ran a campaign at cafes across cities in India where we switched their regular coasters for Mission SanScar's custom coasters to spread the message about sustainable menstruation.
We host informal meet ups to open channels of conversation about menstruation and the thoughts and art it elicits. This is important since menstruation is still considered taboo in India and talking about helps remove some of the stigma. More..
Men are an important part of the menstruation conversation, and it was heartwarming to see more men than women at the poetry meet we hosed for Menstrual Hygiene Day 2018.
