As a result, many treat their periods with unsanitary rags, which can lead to infection. In addition to our Asani sanitary napkin program, through which we train women in rural India to manufacture and distribute sanitary napkins, we hold regular menstrual health management seminars so that women and girls are better educated about their periods and can receive the feminine hygeine products they need.

Happy Makar Sankranti! One of the most important harvest days in India, the festival of Uttarayan marks the day when winter begins to turn into summer, signaling to farmers that the harvest season is approaching. In Gujarat, kites fill the skies as whole families gather on the rooftops to compete against their neighbors. We hope this harvest season brings you and your family lots of good luck, prosperity and happiness! #happyuttrayan #happyuttarayan2020 #makarsankranti #gujarat #gujarattourism #kiteflying #kitefestival #uttarayn #maghbihu #internationalkitefestival #lohri #pongal #desaifoundation #harvest #amitabhbachchan
