How Can We Bring Menstrual Hygiene Equality?

Menstrual hygiene in India is one of the major matter of debate. Furthermore, a large amount of research has shown that lack of hygiene and infrastructure lead girls to drop out schools in rural areas of India. According to Darsa , 23 million girls drop out of school annually due to lack of proper menstrual hygiene management facilities, which include availability of sanitary napkins and logical awareness of menstruation. Taboos related to periods is the second reason involving young girls from villages to stay at home. Hence, we can assume two points regarding education in India:     There is a huge difference between genders about life opportunities, due to cultural and infra structural reasons;      There is a significant difference between the urban lifestyle and the rural one.      Indeed, in Indian cities it is absolutely common to buy napkins in stores. On the other hand, in Indian villages you will not find them at all. Furthermore, it is also difficult to get

EDUCATION AMONG BOYS AND GIRLS IN RURAL VILLAGES IN INDIA

“The things that I learned from my grandfather and father, [are more] useful and practical than things which others learn from the school.”   Those are the words of GunabandiyaUruwarige, Wanniyala-Aetto chief, a Sri Lanka tribe. We think that represent the general condition of rural areas all around India in fact of education. Even if India is considered to be one of the fastest-growing economy, there is a large amount of extra-urban areas where the situation is much different. India is the second largest country in terms of population and the seventh largest in terms of area, so it is difficult to speak generally about the features and the issues of this country.

Parents, haath dhulao, bimari bhagao!!

Parents, do you know when children play in open areas, they touch things that may be contaminated by a MICROBE!!! For example, they could end up touching f eces (poop) from animals or people ACCIDENTALLY andmay result with an infection simply because aSINGLE gram of human poop may contain 1 TRILLION germs. And did you know that you could possibly avoid an infection or MANY visits to the doctor if the kids were trained to wash their hands more regularly. In fact, hand-washing is fool-proof way of keeping your kids away from common infections such as common cold.Dirty hands take the microbe to everywhere they touch including YOU. This is called cross-contamination and it is a very common way of spreading germs, jumping from the inanimate object (for example, if someone sneezed on it) or poop they touched to their skin to their face-nose, lips, eyes(by frequent touching). Some micro-organisms can survive for several minutes on your kid’s or your skin and may spread to another object or
