Meet the two girls from Basera-E-Tabassum, Jammu & Kashmir, who are combating menstrual taboos
Two years ago, Mir and Mubeena, two girls from BeT home, started a sanitary napkin unit. They ran awareness campaigns talking to girls in schools and colleges about menstrual hygiene and the stigma around periods. BeT has been providing help and support to the girls for their initiative. Mir and Mubeena are now running a full-fledged production unit and are looking for investment to improve their business. Read more about their project here.
