When biology makes someone helplessly shameful : “ poor women are forced to use rags during menstrual cycle. – The Hindu ” ( Feb 21,2010) “ Many Indian women make do with little more than scraps of old cloth when menstruating, often risking their health. - South Asian Women’s Forum ” When nature starts the kill: “ Death toll in cold wave goes up to 262 – The Hindu ” ( Jan 12, 2010) People mostly give their old clothes at the time of disasters but the fact is that more than half of this country doesn’t need a disaster to be helped . And the story never ends..
VASTRA-SAMMAN , a national campaign to motivate individuals to contribute their bit to make the change happen. The idea is to tap the unexplored treasure of resourceful waste lying within the boundaries of the hostel rooms. Restoring the self respect and dignity of village communities by empowering them to work on their own issues and receive the material as Impact of Resource Mobilization by GOONJ : 15 th March to 15 th April
Just look in your room, how many t-shirts, jeans, shirts, footwear and more stuff are lying unused ? If you get even one, pity that situation ! Just imagine : The number of lives you could have saved from cold. Realize the fact that a t-shirt when turned into 6 sanitary pads, could help 6 women during their menses. “ Your discard could be someone’s asset.” We don’t need a disaster to happen, half of this country doesn’t need a disaster to be helped . Why Should You Join ?
