Raise Your Hand by Goonj

Goonj has launched ‘Raise Your Hand’ (RYH) Campaign among the masses for women’s dignity and menstruation. Whether in cities or villages every month women across the country face many hurdles in dealing with their menstruation.. It’s happening in our homes as well.. It must change because it is after all a human Issue.. not a women’s Issue.. That’s why we all need to Raise Our Hands!!

Raise Your Hand Campaign is about:
• Initiating a conversation on menstruation ‘Chuppi Todo Baithak’ (Break the Silence Meeting) with 5 or more people in your own network. Register here, bit.ly/2IeISBu
You can also join Goonj on May 26, 2018 in a ‘Chuppi Todo Baithak’ at Goonj offices in Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad and Rishikesh. Event details: http://njpc.goonj.org/FB%20NJPC%20Event%20May2018.pdf

• Joining in Goonj’s goal of reaching 100,000 menstrual ‘Dignity Packs’ to women in villages of India. Details on https://goonj.org/donate/

We are doing our bit to spread the word but more needs to be done to get everyone involved. Do take it forward in your own network- FB page, WhatsApp groups, Twitter handle etc. because every action matters!!

About GOONJ; Goonj (means an echo) is a multi award winning social enterprise working pan India to build an economic bridge between the cities and villages. Goonj started the NJPC (‘Not Just a Piece of Cloth’ (NJPC) initiative in 2005, around a decade ago. NJPC is focused on opening up the most taboo and ignored subject of menstrual hygiene by involving the masses in generating an affordable cloth napkin. The NJPC programme is a nationwide intervention, which starts with providing a physical product but stresses more on changing practices and mindsets and behavioral patterns in the long run. MY Pad, Goonj’s clean cloth pad is developed out of old cloth collected from urban masses. It is made with highly indigenous processes while talking to women about the related health and hygiene aspects..Our aim is to spread global awareness about this basic need and get more people to talk about it, to break the taboo and shame around this natural process.
