Celebrating International Women’s Day
In an economic, social and political environment where women are achieving great success, menstruation is one major area where women still need to be more empowered. To overcome these issues and continue to make efforts towards empowerment of women, Canon India Involve organized a virtual awareness programme on menstrual health with community women of our adopted villages – Maheshwari (Haryana, North India) and Annadodi (Bengaluru, South India) on the occasion of Women’s Day. The initiative aimed at improving the knowledge level and practice about menstrual health among masses. The educational programme included discussion on menstruations, causes, effects, myths and facts. 74 community women benefitted from the session conducted by 11 female employees from Corporate office and regional office in Bengaluru.
