About this project

What is Kanya's Chance?
Kanya's Chance e.V. is a Berlin-based non-profit organization founded by Berlin students working to improve access to menstrual health education and hygiene products for women in developing countries.

While taken for granted in the western world, the use of sanitary napkins is the exception rather than rule for many women and girls in rural India. Therefore, we at Kanya’s Chance have set ourselves the goal to provide each girl and woman access to sanitary napkins. The name of our initiative is formed by combining the Sanskrit word for ‘girl’, Kanya, and Chance, indicating the potential that goes unfulfilled due to the shackles holding back the girls in India. This would be regardless of geographic, social or economic barriers.
Vision: 
Letting each and every girl achieve her full potential without menstrual bleeding being a hindrance.
How do we help?
Our primary target group is schoolgirls ages ten and above. We provide them with free sanitary pads per month and give courses on women's health. Through this, we aim to reduce absence from school due to menstruation, thereby improving education equality.

We are currently providing sanitary napkins monthly to 1000 schoolgirls at ten different schools in Anand, Gujarat.
