From August 15th to August 18th 2017, the team of Safe N’ Happy Periods visited Mijwan, a town known for the MIJWAN Welfare Society. Safe n’ Happy Periods, a personal social impact initiative was founded by Sarika Gupta, which is funded by family, friends and well-wishers. Looking at the current situation of myths, taboos and insufficient menstrual awareness, Sarika decided to take this initiative towards shame-free and pain-free menstruation time. The vision is to break the stigma around periods and to encourage girls and women to feel confident in their bodies.
