A Liberal Point of View to Life

Rags-to-Pads

A fundraising project, called Rags-to-Pads, to bring sanitary pads to rural Indians requires your attention and donation.

Poor Indian women risk vaginal and urinary tract infections (and thus illness, incontinence, and infertility) during every period from puberty to menopause. You can find more information at http://ragstopads.com/.

Rags-to-Pads Initiative

Rags-to-Pads Initiative

This initiative is by Jenny and Dave, who also write at Our Delhi Struggle blog about their experiences in India. You can read more about it on their blog here. Their target is to collect 5000$ for the project. Your donation will help the Pardada Pardadi Girls School create a business that:

  • provides extremely low-cost pads and
  • creates employment opportunities for women in a region that has almost none

If you can not donate, please spread the word through your blog or email.

  4. @Shri: I have updated the blog. I hope to do so more often. 🙂

  5. Am pleased to read what you are doing. Although i am a male have seen how our girls suffer because they lack pads. We as a community bassed youth group have a programme were we give girls pads so that we ensure that they go to school even if they are in periods. I would like you to visit our web site at http://www.shofco.org and read more of what we do. The challenge we have is finding funds to buy the pads. We are only praying to God that may be one day we will have someone to come and teach or train some of our girls in Kibera how to make the pads using the materials we have instead of buying them coz they are too expensive for those who live here in Kibera.
    Be blessed
