Workshop on menstrual hygiene at Asha’s Kalkaji slum community
It is not inappropriate to talk about menstruation! It is not wrong to express your menstrual cramps!
To clear the doubts and fight the menstrual taboos in our society, the team from Macquarie Global Limited’s Gurugram office along with the Asha Team conducted a workshop on the menstrual hygiene in Kalkaji slum community on June 21. The team of six came to the centre and began the workshop with Mahila Mandal (Women’s Association) and explained them the biological natural process. They also shared some ideas of home remedies for menstrual cramps and cleanliness. Sanitary napkins were distributed to women post discussion.
The team from Macquarie was surprised hearing the stories of Mahila Mandal members and was glad to know the knowledge possessed by them about menstruation and personal hygiene. Mahila Mandal members made them aware that Asha conducts awareness programs on a regular basis.
