Recognition to ‘Best Practices Easing Menstrual Challenges’
Menstruation is a fact of life for countless women yet almost every woman lives with one or many menstrual horror stories. The challenges that women face every month, can’t be left any more to be tackled by menstrual experts or policy makers.

Goonj was among the first organizations in India, more than a decade ago, to openly talk about menstrual hygiene in the larger discourse and in the development sector. Our initiative Not Just a Piece of Cloth (NJPC) focuses on making menstruation normal as a human issue and evolving solutions for women’s menstrual challenges.

We feel bringing multiple transnational, social, cultural, financial menstrual challenges into the narrative of organizations and people focused deeply on holistic development work, will help in addressing it.

If you or your organization has evolved and implemented some ideas/practices to ease this challenge, we want to hear from you. We are recognizing and highlighting best menstrual practices and ideas to motivate others to do the same and to create a healthy ecosystem with knowledge-based sharing, cross-learning and networking.

Please share your best practice by May 7th, 2019

You can also courier a hard copy of your story titled ‘Menstruation Dialogue’ to
