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/.
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.
