PINKISHE AT A GLANCE

THE BEGINNING

Pinkishe Movement is a dream, an ever-growing dream, which first rippled in the eyes of a 16 years old schoolgirl, Khyati Gupta, when her teenage eyes noticed something which smote her tiny heart. One day, this chit of a girl was appalled when she saw bloodstains on her housemaid's daughter's dress. On enquiring, to her utter shock, she discovered that they cannot afford pads, hence they recycle discarded pieces of unhygienic cloth every month.

 

Heartbroken, Khyati undertook research on the subject on the internet and the study showed that the majority of females in rural India lack the awareness of menstrual hygiene and some even have no option but to resort to using material like cow dung, leaves, sand, etc. That was horrifying. This gave birth to Pinkishe Foundation.

The dream that rippled in the eyes of a tiny girl gradually started getting a firm footing, and slowly, with the robust support of many committed people, the contours of a solid movement became visible. Women kept joining hands and today Pinkishe is a community of over 2 lakh+ women. It is run by common women who operate from their homes and do voluntary service.

 

Women in this foundation are common women who have pledged to make a difference in the lives of fellow women and girls. They operate from their homes and contribute their services voluntarily. There is not even a single person in Pinkishe who draws any salary or compensation in any other form.

 

The foundation aims at supporting women in living life with strength and dignity. 

We, at Pinkishe Foundation, are hopeful of converting our dream of building a better world for females into reality.

 

All this because a small girl dared to dream big.

WOMEN IN INDIA HAVE BEEN RISING!

Some more, some less! Some faster, some slower!

The positive change in the status of women

is visible. They already stand on the threshold of self-assertion demanding rightfully the parity that has eluded their grasp for long enough.
