Many NGOs and Corporate Firms are constantly trying to reach out to school-studying girls; to benefit them from free and easy access to sanitary napkins during periods. Schools set up in both urban and rural areas need to install Sanitary Pad Vending Machine; so that girls studying in schools will be saved from the embarrassment; that will also protect them from mental trauma; caused due to embarrassment.
Girls get their first period in school. It becomes the responsibility of schools to provide period education to girls studying in schools. When she faces her first period, she won’t panic and can handle the whole situation. Concepts such as:
- Menstruation Cycle,
- Period Products,
- Period Hygiene and
- Menstrual disorders
Must be discussed. With the virtue of the Internet, there are many concepts related to the menstruation cycle explained through videos and posts. But despite web knowledge, period education must be provided in educational institution, and a Sanitary napkin vending machine must be installed at every educational institution in every country.
