An initiative towards healthy ecofeminism!
Ecofeminism is a subset of feminism that considers environmentalism and the connection between women and the environment fundamentals to its analysis and practice. Ecofeminism emphasizes the importance of respecting the needs of both women and nature.
A Bit of Background
Here at The Aquiline, we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all. The idea at the root of this strategy is that women experience the problem of unhygienic menstrual management, which has an impact on their personal advancement. At least 500 million women and girls worldwide do not have access to basic menstrual hygiene management (MHM) facilities.
Women and girls experience difficulties in keeping their menstrual hygiene private, safe, and dignified due to a lack of availability of sanitary products in public places and disposal solutions for used sanitary pads.
We pledge to creating programs that boost teenage girls' and women's confidence, knowledge, and abilities, as well as enhance access to materials and facilities, to help them manage their menstruation in a healthy and environmentally responsible manner.
We seek to promote menstruation health and hygiene in four major areas:
Knowledge and competencies
Enabling safe disposal of sanitary products
Availability and use of sanitary products
Ways We Help
Meaningful Work. Unforgettable Experiences.
Need For Vending Machine
Our objective with this effort is to promote great possibilities for women in need. With access to the necessary resources, women can become empowered by their own abilities.
If schools, colleges, public toilets, and workplaces install sanitary napkin vending machines, women will be able to maintain their menstrual hygiene during menstrual cycles. It will also save women from rushing into a medical store to acquire a sanitary napkin and carrying a sanitary pad about with them during their period.
The vending machines should be established to provide an effective, safe, and convenient method of getting sanitary napkins at any time. The goal line is to inspire women and girls to engage in safe and sanitary practices.
Need For Incinerator
Despite significant advancements in water and sanitation, the needs and requirements of adolescent girls and women remain overlooked. Women manage menstruation differently at home as well as outside; at home, they dispose of menstrual materials in household garbage and in public bathrooms, and they flush them without understanding the risks of choking. As a result, there ought to be a need to educate and make people aware of the environmental pollution and health risks that come with it.
Implementing current waste-reduction strategies, such as incineration, can assist to minimise garbage. Furthermore, awareness should be raised to promote the use of reusable sanitary products or natural sanitary products manufactured from materials such as banana fibre, bamboo fibre, sea sponges, and so on.
