Unfortunately, not even a pandemic stops a woman from getting her period, so on top of the threat of COVID-19, many women in rural areas of India are also dealing with infections that are caused by using unsanitary rags to manage their menstruation.
.
This is why, even at times like these, we are dedicated to producing and distributing low-cost, high-quality sanitary napkins through our Asani program. Your donations are even more necessary now than ever to keep this program running, so learn more and donate here: https://www.thedesaifoundation.org/our-work/sanitary-napkin-program/

Many women and girls in India are banished from their villages while they are menstruating and are not allowed to be near anyone or touch anything for five days. What is the worst period shaming you have experienced?
We are working to end such damaging period #stigmas through our Asani Sanitary Napkin program. Follow the link in our bio to learn more

Our 2nd to last day of the Girl Fund Campaign is dedicated to Hansaben, a mother of two young women who once only knew to use rags during her period..

While attending a Desai Foundation menstrual awareness program, Hansaben learned about the low-cost and benefits of using Asani pads and has since changed her household's practices, educating her daughters as well as some of the other young women in her community on using sanitary napkins.

You can help us win up to $15k to continue expanding our Asani Sanitary Napkin program by donating as little as $10 to our Girl Fund campaign on Global Giving!

You can follow our progress on the Leaderboard here (we need to get in the top 15 for a chance at winning): https://www.globalgiving.org/leaderboards/girl-fund-campaign-2020/
