Menstruation, monthly cycle or periods are the terms for a natural biological process, yet many of us find ourselves still talking in ‘code language’ when it comes to our cycles.

I enjoy our work a lot and I'm learning to be more confident about my own body. Why be ashamed of a natural biological process? I think Menstrual Hygiene Education should be compulsory in all schools. I loved working with my colleagues at Sikun Relief Foundation. Thank you for making me a part of this journey.

Fighting menstrual taboos is like 'setting the Thames on fire' but we have raised a voice and, I know that it will fight to the finish. A wonderful experience working with the organisation and lets talk periods because IT IS NATURAL.

Sikun Relief Foundation is taking a bold step in educating people about menstrual hygiene and its initiative in sanitation is also commendable. It was a great opportunity to be associated with SRF Looking forward to keep this association till the pigs can fly.
