Young Girls in Khichdipur, Delhi, aspire to be IPS Officers, doctors …A far off dream?
Soothe Healthcare took the first step towards encouraging these 80 girls to realize their dreams, by conducting Menstrual Health & Hygiene Management (MHM) sessions during National Women’s Health Week (May 11 – 17), in partnership with HLFPPT.
The girls also shared the experiences of their first period. “I tried discussing about it [menstruation] with my friend but she just laughed at me.” Our research shows teenage girls reach out to their peers for guidance on menstruation but they are not getting the answers they need, to care about their health.
Soothe Healthcare started the conversation with its Paree Education guides, encouraging girls to talk and share with their mothers, elder sisters, or Paree Didi for guidance.
The girls were educated on good health and hygiene practices required to be active and healthy and be confident to achieve their dreams.
