WOW aims to educate and empower the world’s largest population with heightened vulnerabilities of menstrual hygiene and management with a strong grass root revolution against the taboo engulfed with low awareness and lack of facilities.
WOW believes that adolescence is an opportunity to instill information on hygiene management and boost confidence to empower the girl child. This would directly impact the 23% girls forced to abandon education on the onset of menstruation cycle. It seeks to augment facilities of water, soap, adequate toilets and disposal facilities for more privacy and easy usage in 1.37 million government schools. More importantly, counseling on the cause and effects so that a more aware girl child could easily fight absenteeism and poor performance in school that is found to build negativity in completing studies.
Sanitary freedom that keeps Indian schoolgirls in class. Menstrual liberation that empowers women to equal number of working days as their male counterparts. WOW supports raising awareness regarding sanitation and hygiene with a specific focus in menstrual management in order to empower the last mile customers and enable them to make informed choices.
Through awareness raising curiculams we believe we can facilitate a unique and independent way of thinking based on logical perspective and scientific facts. We at World Of Women believe that education is the root and foundation of a new future and high progress.
Celebrating Menstruation and viewing it as a positive aspect of being a female is necessary step in allowing women to empower themselves. Feeling of guilt, fear, embarrassment or shame can be eradicated once the process of menstruation is seen as normal bodily function.
Expanding The Dialogue to all individuals in the conversation about menstruation is necessary because it isba human right for people to be treated with dignity and respect.
Nurturing such an environment required that menstruation matters are communicated not only among women and girls but also among boys and men as well.
