About this webinar
One Day For Menstrual Hygiene
FairGaze (leading school media), along with India Is Us (an NGO support initiative working with over 100 NGOs), has initiated #OneDayForMenstrualHygiene drive coinciding with the World Menstrual Hygiene Day observed on 28th May, every year.
This campaign will engage the school community to implement Sustainable Development Goals, SDG 3 (Good Health & Wellbeing), SDG 4 (Quality Education), SDG 5 (Gender Equality), SDG 6 (Clean Water & Sanitation), SDG 8 ( Decent work & Economic Growth), and SDG 12 (Responsible consumption and Production), helping students understand periods, dispel myths, discard pseudoscience, and embrace body positivity and eco-friendly menstrual hygiene products.
This campaign aims to spread information about safe menstrual practices and dispel myths with scientific reasoning. The subject of menstruation and menstrual hygiene has been a big taboo in our society. Many girls still follow many myths especially those who have limited access to sanitary pads or menstrual education. Worse still, girls are looked down upon and considered impure when they have the periods. The campaign offers participants an opportunity to be open-minded about menstruation, encouraging young girls to be able to talk about it more freely
As a part of the campaign, we are organizing a webinar on Menstrual Health and Hygiene (MHH) on 28th May,4 PM with schools and NGOs across the country.
