.PROJECT SUMMERY: 88% of India's 355 million women do not have access to sanitary pads, particularly in rural communities. Lack of awareness and affordability means that sand; ash, rags or dirty cloth is used instead of sanitary pads, leading to blistering, soreness, infections and long-term health issues. This problem can be solved with our health and hygiene awareness project, training young local women leaders to raise awareness about menstrual health and hygiene, puberty, female anatomy, sex education, unwanted pregnancy, safe motherhood, and nutrition. Kenosis aims to medicate issues related to women’s health by establishing tailoring skills unit and produce feminine health kit, distribute to local schools and community and generate income through selling low-cost sanitary pads locally in Sesurajapuram and its surrounding 18 villages of Krishnagiri district, Tamilnadu state, south part of India.
SOLUTION & OUTCOMES: This project tackles problems of both awareness & affordability by investing funds to buy sewing machines, 3-6 months sewing and stitching sanitary health kit and selling at low cost and generating income of their own. It’s initially taking place in 18 rural villages of Sesurajapuram, a project location and its surrounding villages, in the district of Krishnagiri, Tamilnadu state, India (south). We also aim at not only 18 villages, but also at least 10 schools to give health awareness, training, and workshops and allow local adolescent girls in schools to learn about the importance of menstrual health & hygiene, including sanitary pads and managing their personal life and going to school regularly. At least 20 youth leaders out of 10 schools will be chosen from each school and 10 teachers’ trained as a mentor and will take part in a training session on health issues and business skills. They will be given stock of low-cost sanitary pads to promote and sell to local women in their slums. Also, during the training, the young mothers and adolescent school dropout girls will be trained to make Dresses, blouse, shirts, pants, Rexine bags; jute bag and cloth bag and beautician training by experts so that the women and girls get a sustainable income of their own by distribution of sanitary napkins to meet their daily livelihoods. The women will also be recommended to access job opportunities in Garment Company to get monthly salaried jobs.
