Menstrual Education (Health & Hygiene) Workshop

SNHP conducts a workshop titled on Menstrual Education & Awareness for schools, colleges, fellow NGOs, corporates and anybody who is willing to create awareness and educate their surroundings on different aspects of Menstrual Health & Hygiene.

Our program is designed uniquely for girls of different age groups (from Menarche to Menopause). 

Safe N’ Happy Periods has taken the initiative and responsibility to do these sessions for different age group of women in different sections of our society.

Educating Women about Menstruation

We educate women about what is menstruation and how the menstruation cycle works (Female reproductive system and how it functions). We talk about Periods and the Menstruation Cycle. Since menstrual education is still not a part of curriculum in many schools, many girls still have no education on how the reproductive system works. We help them understand their own bodies so that they feel confident of it.

Importance of Good Menstrual Hygiene Habits

We discuss the importance of menstrual hygiene and how to maintain it. Do’s and don’ts to maintain a good hygiene during periods and otherwise. This can keep them away from many menstrual or Gynecological disorders later in life.

Overview about Menstrual Disorders

Talk about the Importance of Diet

The MC (menstrual cycle) and reproductive health of a women is highly sensitive to the kind of food they consume. And that is probably one of the many reasons of having so many diseases at a young age today. A healthy and wholesome diet can go a long way in keeping a good health and keep menstrual disorders at bay. We talk about different foods that can be beneficial for women and improve their overall health.

Periods and Meditation

How Periods and meditation can work wonders in giving women a good reproductive and overall health

The most important part of our workshop revolves around a set of Yoga Asanas, which if performed regularly, especially during Periods, can balance your hormones. It can help women with many menstrual and gynecological disorders.

Creating a platform for an Open Dialogue

We are trying to bring women together to talk about why it’s important to talk about Menstruation. And how it can benefit the coming generation and everybody in general. And we wish to do that for men too so that Menstruation becomes an accepted topic to talk about.

Talks & Workshops

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.

Myths &Taboos

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.
