Empowering women on International Women’s Day
On the occasion of Women’s Day, a menstrual awareness session was organized in our adopted villages Maheshwari (Haryana), Karanjoti (Mumbai) and Sol Gohalia (Kolkata). 210 adolescent school girls and 140 community women’s were benefitted from the session conducted by 28 female Canon employees. The initiative aimed to spread awareness on menstruation, causes, myths, facts, use & disposal and other related aspects. The session helped in reducing social stigmas of menstruation among community members.
All the participants were distributed packs of sanitary napkins. Through engagement and interaction, employees were happy to boost the confidence of women by answering unanswered questions about social stigmas and helped create a difference in their lives.
