STORIES OF CHANGE
A Flight of Hope
Trailblazing For Change
Urmul Seemant Samiti, Bajju has been working with adolescent girls on menstrual hygiene management and sanitary napkin preparation, usage and disposal. With support from Plan International, the team has conducted several training and awareness programs for leaders of adolescent girl groups from different villages of the project area. Through these training and awareness programs, the girls were constantly oriented on menstrual hygiene management and developed their understanding on menstrual cycle and how they can make sanitary napkins at home with localized material.
With Head Held High
Madan Singh reflected strength ever since the day we met him at his small house in his fields in village Modayat. Limping around on one leg, he fell prey to polio in his early years but never let that hinder his path to become a successful farmer who tries his best to do justice to his land. When our team at Urmul Model Farm approached him to attend a training on organic and sustainable farming, he showed a great deal of interest and was amongst the first few to reach the campus at Bajju on the day of the training
A WASH Activist in the Making
Manju is the fifth child in a family of six children. Her father was forced to work endlessly to make ends meet for the family. Under societal pressure and barely any resources, her father married off her elder sisters even when they had not attained the legal minimum age. However, Manju was determined to spend her time at school wisely and make the most of it. She was studying in Kasturba Gandhi Balika Vidyalaya where our Prajwala Programme team was implementing a comprehensive WASH intervention to develop an understanding of hygiene and sanitation practices amongst adolescent girls.
