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.
These workshops have created a revolution of sorts in Mijwan because traditionally girls are told nothing about their bodies or menstrual hygiene.We cant even begin to understand how empowering it is for them to even spread their legs collectively.
