Menstrual Hygiene Awareness Program
Menstrual hygiene is very important for a healthy lifestyle of any girl. In order to help the women grow and not let such things become a hindrance in their way to success, our team at SNBS is organizing various rallies and workshop where we are educating the women about their health related rights and bursting the old myths about menstruation. We in association with Niine foundation are also distributing free sanitary napkins for the same project. We organise awareness workshops at Villages and Slums of AGRA, where we educated Girls/Women and spread awareness among them. Our objective is to visit every slum and rural household of Agra in consonance with the same project.
