About the problem 

Driven by a passion for equality, United for Hope is creating more dignified, inclusive and safer living conditions in rural India through a Smart Village approach. Women and girls face numerous challenges, enduring domestic violence, child marriages, and sexual abuse. Caused by dominant patriarchal norms: these are still accepted and passed on to the next generations, creating an endless cycle of oppression


Our solution
  
Menstruation is a process which every women has to deal with, yet lack of awareness about it results in the persistence of harmful and dangerous practices. 
 
Our project encompasses 2 elements: the first focuses on awareness workshops for girls, boys, and teachers on Menstrual Hygiene Management and Gender Sensitivity; the second ensures access to adequate WASH facilities in schools to help girls to manage menstruation
We aim to target 10,000 students and 350 teachers, creating a more supportive and inclusive environment in 100 schools and related communities.
