Pad Free Women Drive (District 313)

Inner Wheel Club of Jalna Horizon

District chairman: Santosh Singh

President: Netra Bhakkad

Cost of project : 16000/-

No. of benficiers-200

The Inner Wheel Club of Jalna Horizon took the initiative instil awareness about women’s pad free period. 200 menstrual cups were given free of cost to lady police constables, hospital staff, teachers etc. A gynaecologist gave talks with detailed demonstration through PowerPoint slides about how to use menstrual cups.

Questions asked were: Why should we use it? How to take care of the cup? All the myths regarding the use of menstrual cups were cleared. All users are really thankful to us. By using menstrual cups, there is less trash, keeping the environment clean, and cuts off the cost of purchasing pads from the monthly budget.

We also extended our hand to many other Inner Wheel Clubs by providing them with menstrual cups at discounted rates. These cups were distributed with the Inner Wheel branding. The drive is still ongoing.
