Avni To Set Up Promotional Workshops For Menstrual Hygiene
The workshops intend to burst period myths and address queries of mothers of young girls who are about to enter or have just begun menstruating.
Avni, a feminine care and hygiene startup has announced that it has set up first-of-its-kind educational workshops to promote menstrual health and hygiene. The workshops intend to burst period myths and address queries of mothers of young girls who are about to enter or have just begun menstruating.
A qualified paediatrician will lead the private workshops and provide mothers and girls with verified content to help them understand the root cause of culturally internalised taboos; UTI-related infection problems; causes of irregular periods, heavy periods, Premenstrual Syndrome (PMS); the negative effects of poor quality plastic-based sanitary pads including toxic shock syndrome (TSS), vaginal odour, rashes, itchiness, swelling and more importantly planning for menstrual periods and disposal of sanitary napkins. Currently, the workshops are held once a month, however, based on demand, Avni intends to increase the frequency of these informative workshops to once every three weeks.
Sujata Pawar, Co-Founder, Avni said, “With so many initiatives to incentivise women’s welfare, poor menstrual hygiene is still an insufficiently recognised problem in India. To address the same holistically and prevent girls from dropping out of school due to problems concerning menstruation, we have rolled out workshops to educate adolescent girls within the framework of extensive sexual education about health issues in general and menstrual and sexual health in particular. These workshops are also designed to raise awareness among girls, and parents – both mothers and fathers – of the value and advantages of organic sanitary napkins and other menstrual protection alternatives, and to encourage them to maintain safe practices, knowledge, and attitudes throughout their lives while also passing it on to the next generation.”
Avni has a total of 8 products listed on its website, with over 100 variants for customers to choose from.
