Pinky Bank at Nishkam Vidya Mandir, Ludhiana

Dec 12th, 2023

The fourth Pinky Bank was launched on December 12th 2023 in Ludhiana at Nishkam Vidya Mandir. Sanitary napkins were distributed to 100 school going girls who are unable to afford it for themselves. This distribution was completed with the help of Dr Pinky Arora from Chicago and Anupama Ma’am who runs Nishkam. Monthly distribution is planned for future.

Women are provided free sanitary pads in this villages because proper menstrual hygiene is essential in preventing infections like bacterial vaginosis and urinary tract infections. Sanitary pads help keep the genital area clean and dry, reducing the risk of such infections.

Access to free sanitary pads empowers women and girls by giving them control over their menstrual health. It helps maintain their dignity and self-esteem, reducing potential embarrassment or discomfort associated with menstruation.

In these rural areas families facing financial constraints, purchasing sanitary pads may be a significant expense. Providing them for free helps alleviate this economic burden and ensures that all women and girls can manage their menstrual health with dignity.

Providing free sanitary pads helps ensure that women and girls have access to essential menstrual hygiene products, regardless of their socio-economic status. This promotes good menstrual hygiene practices and reduces the risk of infections and other health issues.
