Between October 2018 to March 2019, we reached out to around 1300 girls aged between 13 years and 17 years for awareness on Menstrual Hygiene & Nutrition. 


With the support of our kind donors, Loparex India Private Limited, we went ahead with the objective to educate young adolescent girls on menstruation and menstrual hygiene and Nutritional Awareness for Adolescent Girls. 


CMF conducted sessions by expert Doctors on Menstrual Hygiene and overall awareness around menstruation. In the same session, education to the girls on nutrition related to female health was given. 


CMF distributed free sanitary napkins to enable the girls to get into the habit of using napkins instead of cloth / rags / etc. and conducted clinical examination of girls for nutritional deficiencies and distribution of nutritional supplements to make up for the deficiencies.


These sessions were done in Tribal schools in Silvassa and girls schools in Mumbai.
