On the last day of the event, students distributed reusable sanitary napkins to 100 underprivileged households in Mumbai under its initiative called ‘Sakhi’, where crowdfunding was conducted to not just ensure sanitary napkins reach impoverished girls but also ensure that proper menstrual hygiene is taught to girls who have recently attained puberty.
