Nearly 100 under-privileged girls were educated about their biological clock, safety and hygiene to be followed during their periods. 

The  session began with a lot of hesitation and timid smiles among the young girls. Soon the interactive session encouraged the girls to open up as they promptly answered the questions directed to them and shared their problems. This was first of its kind of experience for these girls as they had never discussed menstrual health before as it is frowned upon. They were quite surprised that most of the don'ts that these girls followed were actually myths related to menstruation. The highlight of the camp was the emphasis on the importance of hygiene during menstruation and otherwise. All in all, the session was of great  educational value to the girls as they imbibed lifelong lessons of health and hygiene.
