on shame-free and pain-free menstruation
We create awareness on different aspects of menstruation for adolescent girls & women through talks & workshops.
A Social Impact Initiative
Safe N’ Happy Periods is a humble step towards a shame-free and pain-free menstruation time. We create awareness on different aspects of menstruation for adolescent girls & women through talks & workshops.
A self-funded initiative by Sarika, which started it in February 2016, has been a humbling experience and a rewarding journey in every way for everybody attached to this cause. It was always a desire to give back to the society and through this initiative we are trying to address this particular challenge faced by many young girl adults in India.
What is Menstruation?
Its important for a women to know what is Menstruation, why it happens, and why its important. That too at the right time i.e. before her first Period.
Correct usage & disposal
Today the civic authorities and individuals are struggling with the humongous menstrual waste that is being generated. Through dialogue we persuade for adopting better disposal habits.
Dealing with menstrual pain
Irrespective of geographies and age, women grapple with period pain. We use tried and tested Yoga postures for easing menstrual pain.
We are creating a dialogue to look at the taboos and myths with a fresh perspective to accept few and discard some.
Menstrual Hygiene & Disorders
They are connected strongly. So its important to emphasize the need and ways to look at Hygiene. And also different ways to manage the disorders through Yoga, lifestyle changes, etc.
Individual Roles in Society
A single men or women can create a difference in the lives of girls and women around them. We have been able to inspire people to join this movement in different ways and bring a change in the society we live in.
Kind words from the people where we hosted workshops.
