Sharda School of Nursing Science & Research Organizing a “Rural Mega Menstrual Hygiene Awareness program” in collaboration with an NGO (Niine Foundation) in selected community areas of Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh.
Menstrual health was left off the agendas of both the Millennium Declaration and the International Conference on Population and Development. It is not explicitly stated in either the Sustainable Development Goals 3 (health), 5 (gender equality), or 6 (climate change) (water and sanitation). To draw attention to reports of women’s and girls’ experiences of shame and embarrassment, as well as the challenges they face in managing their periods because they lack the resources to do so, grassroots workers and activists from the global South have brought it up on the global health, education, human rights, and gender equality/equity agendas.
Globally, approximately 130 million girls are out of school, according to UNESCO. And while there are many reasons for this, periods and a lack of sanitation, hygiene, and menstrual health play a major role, as girls from resource-poor environments attribute frequent school absences to difficulties managing their menstruation, with absenteeism being associated with lack of privacy and limited availability of water and sanitation facilities at schools.
Lack of knowledge and poor personal hygiene practices during menstruation can result in a variety of gynecological issues in girls’ reproductive lives. Girls must have access to water and sanitation to manage menstruation hygienically and with dignity. They require a private area to change their sanitary cloths or pads, as well as clean water and soap for washing their hands, bodies, and reusable cloths, as well as facilities for safely disposing of used materials or a clean place to dry them if they are reusable. There is also a need for men and women to be more aware of good menstrual hygiene practices. Menstruation is a natural process, but it is taboo in most parts of the world and rarely discussed.
Despite various government schemes to promote menstrual hygiene during menstruation in rural areas by providing subsidized sanitary napkins, data from the most recent round of the National Family Health Survey (NFHS-5) indicate that the use of hygienic methods during menstruation is still lower in rural areas than in urban areas.
Learning about hygiene during menstruation is a vital aspect of health education for adolescent girls as patterns that are developed in adolescence are likely to persist into adult life.
Objectives of the Event:
- To educate adolescent girls about menstruation hygiene and personal care during menstruation.
- To distribute sanitary napkins to all females while also teaching them how to maintain hygiene during the menstrual cycle, using “wing.”
- To increase knowledge regarding the use of hygienic methods during menstruation among adolescent women in rural areas.
- To ensure safe disposal of Sanitary Napkins in an environmentally friendly manner.
- To increase access to and use of high-quality sanitary napkins for adolescent girls in rural areas.

Fire safety is one of the most important considerations for any employer, school, college or university, mall, theatre or management personnel. Fire dangers are the most hazardous of all because, if a fire breaks out in a building, it will not only destroy that portion but quickly spreads, possibly resulting in death. Though few fire incidents are avoidable and predicted early, the majority are not. Thousands of people are killed or seriously injured every year as a result of fire hazards. Whether it’s an organization or a residence, a group of individuals or a single person, if fire disasters occur at a very serious level, the consequences will be disastrous. Cooking appliances, cigarettes, unmaintained cylinder tubes, and non-maintenance of fire-prone places, among other things, are all likely to cause major house mishaps. People need to be aware of fire- fighting devices and how to use them, as well as evacuation procedures, in order to avoid or protect themselves from flames.
