2. Project Shakti

It’s the dream of every teenage girl to be healthy and carefree. This can be achieved by showing them the importance of

NUTRITION      HEALTH      HYGIENE       SELF CONFIDENCE

At a young age if we can inculcate the right ideas and habits, these will become the most important life lessons that a girl learns.

The idea behind this project is that economically backward girls start their menstrual cycle very late because their general state of health is very poor. At the age when they have to be in a good physical condition, they are anaemic, due to lack of good and nutritious food. Most of them have never had vitamins or supplements to bolster their health. They are completely unprepared for the onset of menarche. They have poor menstrual hygiene due to non-affordability and other misconceptions about sanitary pads. They use cloth and other products as substitutes. These are not washed properly due to paucity of water or not dried because of the secrecy surrounding the menstrual period. Vaginitis and urinary tract infections are twice as prevalent among them.

The Interface endeavours to pick girls from 4 schools between the ages of 11 and 16 and habituate them for a year:

  • Teach them good nutrition habits–giving them an energy bar, consisting of natural iron and calcium
  • Show them how to stay healthy – giving them multi vitamins on school working days
  • Tell them the importance of hygiene – giving them a pack of sanitary napkins with a panty every month
  • Impart self-confidence by-  giving them lessons in safe touch, self-defence and menstrual hygiene

The impact of the project will be showcased by showing the improvement in health in the first 3 months. This reporting will be shared with our Donors.
