On the 5th Annual World Menstrual Hygiene Day on the 28th May 2018, India’s renowned and only ~100% compostable (the only totally Eco Friendly) sanitary napkins manufacturer Aakar Innovations and the New Delhi Municipal Council (NDMC) will bring a unique event to highlight the 2018 Global Menstrual Hygiene Day Campaign theme ‘#NoMoreLimits-Empowering women and girls through good menstrual hygiene’.
Our star-powered Miss India and Miss World 2017 Manushi Chhillar will mark an important milestone in history as India focuses on menstrual hygiene and health for its 335 crore target women and young girls. Manushi also won the ‘Beauty with a Purpose’ crown for her project in Female Hygiene and Health.
“Run Forever Fun Forever” is a quote synonymous with Mr. Roop Betala, a Guinness Book of World Record holder- an ardent Marathon runner whose passion is no more confined to running but has taken a larger than life form of philanthropy where Mr Betala has started raising funds for social causes and awareness.
Both Miss World and Mr Betala together with teenage girls and teachers from NDMC and Navyug schools and citizens will adorn Connaught Place, the heart of Delhi, to create awareness and raise funds for Menstrual Health and Hygiene. A one-of-its-kind event will highlight “Run Forever Fun Forever” under the overarching theme of ‘#NoMoreLimits-Empowering women and girls through good menstrual hygiene’. We hope to create impact to directly with 500+ stakeholders and indirectly to millions of citizens of Delhi NCR and across India through the media.
