A personal Social Impact Initiative, Safe N’ Happy Periods is a step towards creating awareness on shy-free and pain-free Menstruation time, through workshops and talks.
Its a self-funded initiative by Sarika, her sister Ragini (Yoga instructor & Founder www.urbanemonk.com in Seattle, US) and two friends.
Our aim is to create a platform and environment where girls can talk openly about PERIODS and share their concerns and myths.
Through our workshops we talk about various aspects of Menstruation; right from menstrual hygiene and health, why its important to talk about it, relevance of myths and taboos in today’s time, prevailing practices for menstrual disposal and waste, environment concerns etc.
Our team consist out of local and international volunteers, all willing to contribute to a more shame-free and pain free society on the matter of menstruation. Their efforts range from assisting in workshops, to creating more awareness on social media or in the local culture in general. Their efforts are appreciated as they all work hard and do this selflessly!
