From building menstrual life skills to advocating for sustainable period products to raising awareness about menstrual disorders - we facilitate a range of workshops, each tailored for the specific target audience!
The language and hyper-feminine conceptions of menstruation and menstruators can be severely harmful to the mental and physical wellbeing of queer people. Menstruation is not defined by womanhood and womanhood is not defined by menstruation. Challenging conventional connotations around menstruation is an important step to include genderqueer individuals who menstruate. Boondh and Schbang For Good launch #UngenderMenstruation to challenge the existing unidimensional discourse around menstruation.
"Menstrual activism strives to resist menstrual shame, and expand knowledge and care options. Art of this kind provocatively challenges the viewer to assess their assumptions about menstrual taboos. It can upend what is taken for granted, and that’s powerful." ~ Chris Bobel, Author of New Blood: Third Wave Feminism and the Politics of Menstruation.
The Twogether Cup and Cloth pad campaign is an initiative towards sharing economic privilege with menstruators who choose to use Boondh cups and cloth pads to manage their periods but don’t have the economic means to do so. Through this program, Boondh and its trusted partners reach out to communities and offer menstrual life skills sessions and make available reusable period care options such as menstrual cups and cloth pads, wherein a beneficiary invests INR 50-100 to ensure ownership and usage.
"I am a victim of heavy bleeding and extreme menstrual pain, and going to school wearing sanitary pads that caused me rashes while also fueling the fear of leakage was no less than a nightmare. Now I feel a lot more comfortable during my periods - thanks to the ease of using a Boondh cup! 11/10 recommended!"
