Menstruation Dialogue; Missing Voices, Missed Out Issues
Our annual event ‘Menstruation Dialogue‘ scheduled for May, is postponed now due to the unfolding pandemic COVID-19 in the interest of larger public safety. When the larger situation stabilizes a bit we will update about a new date.
Recognising ‘Best Practices’ Easing Menstrual Challenges of Women
Goonj was among the first organizations in India, more than a decade ago, to openly talk about menstrual hygiene in the larger discourse and in the development sector. Our initiative Not Just a Piece of Cloth (NJPC) focuses on making menstruation normal as a human issue and evolving solutions for women’s menstrual challenges.
We strongly believe that women face multiple menstrual challenges and it’s important to bring these challenges into the mapping of organizations and people focused deeply on holistic development work with women.
If you or your organization has evolved and implemented some innovative ideas ideas/practices/programmes/work to address and ease this challenge, we want to hear from you. We are recognizing and highlighting best menstrual practices and ideas to motivate others to do the same and to create a healthy ecosystem with knowledge-based sharing, cross-learning and networking.
Last date for the submission : will be informed when COVID situation stabilizes.
