Stand by her – not just in life, but in her journey as a woman; equipher with information, support, and access to affordable feminine care products. Help us bring 1000 reusable feminine hygiene kits (Care Kits) toyoung females living across 5 remote villages of India.
The ability to manage one’s menstrual cycles with sufficient knowledge,safety, and dignity, and without social stigma is an essential human right.However, thousands of girls and women in rural India lack access to infrastructure, hygiene products,and information to manage their periods effectively and comfortably.Often simply they layer unsanitary clothing to manage their “dirtydays.” This causes health hazards, days offof school and work, and limits their potential and confidence.
Our Care Kits (made by local women) will provide each girl with eight reusable menstrual pads along with a set of underwear. Local nurses and healthcare providers will leadadvocacy on fertility, biology and hygiene to the girls and women receiving the kits.
Amrita-Seattle’s prior initiative to provide Care Kits in the Ladakh region in March 2018 was enthusiastically embraced. Since then we have had many requests for kits from various parts of India. Your gift today will allow her to reach her full potential.
Stand by her and help her get started!
Let’s celebrate the spring in Seattle with a musical evening “Gaan Bhaolobeshey Gaan” (Music of the Heart”)
Let’s embrace an evening of romance and nostalgia based on Iconic modern bengali songs from Golden Hits of all times on April 21st at Kirkland Performance Center
It’s an opportunity to indulge ourselves with melodious voices of our favorite singers of Seattle and to support the cause “Save the Children from Malnutrition” – an Amrita-Seattle initiative.
All proceeds from this event will directly serve 200 malnourished children with nutritional food in villages of Sunderbaan and rural West Bengal, India.
Lack of parental care, resources and infrastructure, leads to parents being unable to supply nutritive well-balanced diet to their children and keep them healthy. As a result, above ninety percent of the children in these villages suffer from malnutrition and worm infestation.
Amrita-Seattle aims to serve nutritional food to 200 kids of two remote schools in the Sunderbaans Forest during the daily pre-school tutorial session for 200 days. This will be accompanied by providing children supplementary multivitamins, anthelmintic medicine, and “Take Me Home” hygiene kits. In addition, local teachers and our coordinators will teach classes to children and parents on nutrition, parental care, adolescence and hygiene.
Support, Donate and Volunteer at our nutrition camp.
