Water is a basic need for any living being to survive, humans need water for each daily work is it drinking, cleaning, washing, or any related thing. Many rural areas still face the problem of water supply and due to lack of water, many things are affected like health, sanitation standard of living, etc.
When it comes to sanitation, women have many difficulties during their normal days but much more during her menstruation time because during those times a woman needs proper facility but its unfortunate that still due to lack of water and sanitation, women’s health is ignored and it affects later at some ages.
Many schools and colleges are still lagging behind in providing proper infrastructure which also mainly includes water, toilets, proper arrangement of spaces. Due to these a large number of girls skip school for those days and then eventually leave studying because parents also pressurise them. It’s uncomforting to use toilets where there is no water and lack of facilities.
Before travelling anywhere, women first need to checkout on washrooms and sanitation because unhygienic areas and washroom make no sense to use even if it’s a normal day or during her periods.
There are also some institutes that have come up with a great initiative to provide pads during an emergency. So it is an initiative and effort that can bring change around us, for us, and obviously by us.
