I WORK FOR SHADHIKA, WHO PROVIDES SUPPORT TO WOMEN-LED NGOS THROUGHOUT INDIA. WE SUPPORT YOUNG WOMEN AND GIRLS IN A VARIETY OF WAYS. ONE OF OUR PARTNER SITES WORKS WITH GIRLS IN SLUM COMMUNITIES OF MUMBAI. MANY OF THESE SLUMS HAVE DIRE SANITATION SERVICES, LACK OF TOILETS, LACK OF PRIVACY AND TRASH BINS.
WE WOULD LIKE FOR RAHA SOLUTIONS TO SUPPORT GIRLS IN THESE COMMUNITIES, ALLOWING THEM TO HAVE THE PROPER SANITATION TOWELS, SO THEY ARE LESS LIKELY TO BE HARRASSED NEAR THE TOILETS AND FEEL CONFIDENT GOING TO AND FROM SCHOOL WHILE THEY ARE MENSTRUATING.
Supporting is easy – best of all, it’s cost-free!

People are excluded from quality health care coverage and they are water starved. Schools are toilet-less. As a result girls drop out of school when they start menstruating. This is so unfair –– lack of water and toilets, medical services, and just being born a girl, are enough to lock families in poverty for generations.
We change this in villages and school that you care about –– see details
