Baghpat, Uttar Pradesh

Under Project Kishori, Pinkishe Foundation, in collaboration with P&G, has undertaken a groundbreaking initiative to address menstrual health and hygiene in Uttar Pradesh. By conducting a series of 600 nukkad natak (street plays) sessions across Baghpat, Hapur, and Bulandshahr, we aim to tackle the stigma associated with menstruation and educate women about crucial menstrual health practices.

The innovative use of nukkad natak to disseminate information has proven to be incredibly effective in engaging communities and sparking important conversations. Through powerful storytelling and relatable characters, these performances convey essential information about menstruation, debunk myths, and promote healthy practices in an entertaining and impactful manner.

The sessions have transformed public spaces into educational forums where open discussions about menstruation are encouraged. These performances have successfully addressed and broken down deep-rooted taboos, making it easier for women and girls to talk about their menstrual health without shame or embarrassment. By normalizing these conversations, we are fostering a supportive community environment where women feel empowered to seek information and resources.

Each nukkad natak session has been carefully crafted to highlight the importance of menstrual hygiene, dispel common misconceptions, and provide practical advice on managing menstrual health. Topics covered include the biological processes of menstruation, the importance of using sanitary products, and maintaining cleanliness during periods. These messages are delivered in a culturally sensitive manner, ensuring that they resonate with the local audience.

Our collaboration with P&G has been instrumental in the success of Project Kishori. Together, we have reached thousands of women and girls, providing them with the knowledge and tools they need to manage their periods confidently and with dignity.
