Pune February 19, 2019: Women in resource-poor settings in India put their health at immense risk during menstruation. From using mud & ash to dirty clothes, menstrual hygiene takes a backseat due to financial constraints and inaccessibility to clean products.
Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi under its CSR initiative has come forward with Humjoli Foundation to support women through a workshop scheduled for 10thFeb on menstrual hygiene by eradicating ‘period poverty’ and replacing it with ‘period positivity’.
Humjoli is a Pune based foundation spearheaded by Dr. Sania Siddiqui that aims to spread awareness about menstrual health and hygiene. While doing this it primarily emphasizes breaking menstruation taboos and myths. This all is done by ‘reaching & teaching’ women and young girls to sensitize them about the issues related to periods through conducting sessions, workshops, personal counselling, and sanitary napkin distribution drives.“Mr. Pankaj Saxena, The General Manager- Radisson Blu Pune Hinjawadi says that we are committed to cater to the needs of young women who make our world. In our society, change will take place only when we create circles of support for the women around us. Through this association, we will lend our support in all possible ways to educate young girls and women of their basic rights and needs”
Humjoli Foundation has over 100 volunteers who are being trained on taking ‘Period Talk’ sessions in schools, rural areas, and other similar setups. Apart from taking sessions for women and girls, the foundation has specially designed modules for young boys as well. It is designed with the motive to educate boys so that they become a support system.
