M.A.R.D. – Menstruation A Right to Discuss
It’s an open platform to discuss about Menstruation & help underprivileged women to get happy
periods. Team M.A.R.D. of Khushiyaan Foundation conducts open talks with the group of people at
public places with a thought to Break the Taboo of Menstruation. With the awareness session, team
M.A.R.D. of Khushiyaan foundation also helps in providing "Happy Periods" to those underprivileged
women who cannot afford sanitary pads and often end up resorting to unhygienic practices like using
leaves, ashes, dirty clothes, etc. Till date team distributes free eco-friendly sanitary napkins to 2000
females every month at various locations of Mumbai.
An educated woman is like a magic wand, which brings prosperity, health and pride. We just have to
unleash her potential and see the magic happen. We have improved a lot on women education since
our independence, but a lot remains to be improved. Factors restricting the growth of women
education in India are mainly societal, and we need to recognize them and eliminate them, if we
want to achieve the goals of socio-economic development.
Naari Pathshala is a mission run by Khushiyaan Foundation aiming to offer quality education to all
the underprivileged woman. The only target of this project is to cover education in the rural parts of
Mumbai & other cities, to provide basic education to females which will help in reduction of frauds
happening with below poverty line people. Currently, team is educating 100+ women of Roti Ghar
"Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.
Team has taught 20 women from Azad Nagar slum the art of stitching cloth bags which is then sold
as eco-friendly cloth bags at no profit margin and the income generated is handed over to these
empowered women & recently few ladies of Roti Ghar- Thane west slum will be making 1000s
chapatis which will be distributed to the kids at Roti Ghar daily locations. This will help these ladies
to get some extra income to run their family.
