Menstrual Health and Reproductive Rights Awareness Program

Kadambini is conducting a comprehensive menstrual health and reproductive rights awareness program in collaboration with Maanushi Foundation. This programme was planned as part of the women’s day celebrations on 8 March 2024 but as the resource person had some medical emergency then it was postponed and is scheduled to be conducted on 19 April 2024 from 3.00 – 4.30pm at A01-202.

Maanushi Foundation is a non-profit organization based in Kumily, Kerala, which started its activities in December 2020. The foundation has been driving sensitization campaigns on menstrual health education, sustainable menstrual practices, sexual and reproductive health and rights awareness, and climate justice for the community. Along with conducting educational and awareness sessions, the team has also implemented economic activities for developing sustainable livelihood among its beneficiaries. The foundation has reached out to over 3500 women through awareness programmes and has distributed reusable cloth pads to over 800 menstruators.

Maanushi Foundation’s work has largely been centered in a three-tier model of education and training, which has been evolved in response to our growing understanding of the community’s experience along with the development of the SRHR ecosystem in India and across the world.

Tier I: Menstrual Health Education

Tier II : Reproductive Health and Rights Education 

Tier III: Collaborative network building for sustainable interventions in communities

The session would help participants understand 

1.   The menstrual cycle, symptoms of pathology and promote healthy behavior 

2.   Nutrition, exercise and awareness about each phase of the cycle. 

3.   Develop the vocabulary and confidence to speak about their menstrual experience

4.   How to use and care for sustainable menstrual products

5.   Essential reproductive rights in the Indian SRHR context
