for delivering sanitary pads to girls and women of remote areas during covid 19 lockdown

Organisation: Nischay Foundation
Initiative: Sanitary Pad Relief Campaign during Lockdown
Location: Jharkhand, India

Sanitary Pad Relief Campaign during Lockdown is Nischay Foundation’s effort to ensure the availability of sanitary pads during the nation-wide lockdown due to Covid-19 virus. With markets being shut during the lockdown, women experienced an additional challenge due to the unavailability of sanitary pads — a non-essential item. The campaign was to provide relief for girls living in remote areas through the helpline setup by Nischay Foundation. The local volunteer assistance allowed for door-to-door delivery in approximately 150 villages in East Singhbhum District.

The foundation helped over 7,000 girls, recorded participation of 30+ volunteers, and were able to crowdsource INR. 1 lakh due to scarcity of funds.
