The need to shift from the menstrual ‘hygiene’ narrative to the larger ambit of holistic menstrual ‘health’ is pressing. In a time when medical gaslighting is rampant and medicines are prescribed with little to no information on side effects, it is critical to understand the symptoms and ramifications of various menstrual disorders. And this is just the place to begin!
Our widest-reaching workshop model is driven towards building menstrual life skills in a particular community of menstruators (students, for instance) and/or building capacities among allied stakeholders (parents, teachers, school administration) through a Caregivers Module to build adequate support and infrastructure systems for said community.
Between Jan 2018 and Jan 2020, approximately 700 people were reached out to and 245 of them have chosen to avail the Boondh cup as a part of the program. These communities range from students and working women in Leh Ladakh in the north to fisherwomen and govt. health workers in Kerala in the south, domestic helpers in Kanpur and menstruators in West Bengal, Hyderabad and Uttarakhand.
