Sanitary Napkins Vending & Disposal Machines to Schools
As a continuation of the ‘Comprehensive Sexuality Education’ program covering about 10000 students from 40 schools, we have now installed ‘Sanitary Napkins Vending Machines’ and ‘Incinerators’ (disposal machines) for the benefit of girl students and teachers in 10 schools and also at the Ladies hostels of the Ahilyabai Holkar Solapur University. These will benefit more than 1780 students from these schools and the University.
The machines were handed over to all the schools on Saturday, February 20th in the presence of Dr. Suhasini Shah, Chairperson of Precision Foundation. Every school was given a supply of 400 sanitary pads and boards with instructions for use of the machines, to be displayed next to the machines. The event was held at Sonamata School in Ram wadi, Solapur. Dr. Uma Pradhan & Dr. Nabha Kakade were the guests of honour for this program. The teachers present at the occasion expressed their determination to educate the girl students about hygiene during menstruation and use of these machines.
