AMODINI

Even in today’s, where several menstrual Hygiene products like sanitary napkin tampons and menstrual cap are available, 88% of Indian woman don't use the most basic form of menstrual protection available in markets. Instead many use old rags, muds, leaves or anything that lay their hands in to collect menstrual blood. Least to say that how much inconveniences and health risks do such women face for not having access to sanitary napkins for period.
 

Taking about menstruation is a taboo in most societies and this contributes to the ignorance and illiteracy on menstrual Hygiene management. Using old clothes and other traditional unsafe methods to deal with menstruation hampers mobility and day day to day activity of women. The result is that they have to miss out on schools as well as other daily commitments. Around 23 million girl's drop out of schools every year at menarche in India.


Amodini is devoted to giving women the knowledge and support to understand how their fertility works and take ownership of their reproductive health.
