PAD BANKS- Peti4Beti is an innovative initiative of WAY Foundation which is completely designed, led and organised by WAY Changemakers from across India. These banks are interesting spaces which breeds social changemakers by giving them tools and reasons to engage in social actions.
What it is?
We are setting up PAD Banks across India to support young girls from NOT dropping out of schools. These banks are led by young passionate changemakers from various towns and cities and the main idea behind this PAD Banks to provide sanitary pads FREE OF COST to deserving girls from underpriviledge communities.
Why do we do it?
A 2014 report by the NGO Dasra titled ‘Spot On!’ informed that almost 23 million girls in India drop out of school annually, because of lack of menstrual hygiene management facilities, including availability of sanitary napkins and awareness about menstruation. The report further suggests that the girls, who don’t drop out, usually miss up to 5 days of school every month.
