WEAW Campaign :

The sanitation and hygiene needs for everyone, at all times, need to be considered if programmers and policies are to be equitable for all. For the disabled, relatively small adjustments to water and sanitation services can ensure that their needs are not overlooked, improving the dignity, health, and overall quality of life of those already disadvantaged.
All participants in our studies were eager to discuss menstruation.
They asked a wide range of questions about sexual and reproductive health and early pregnancy.
Highlighting the need for comprehensive sexuality education.
It is especially imperative that adolescent girls be able to access correct, basic information before they have their first period.

The necessity of women and child care is due to the following reasons:

  • Women shoulder a greater part of the household work and toil for longer hours.
  • Women are exposed to dangerous levels of indoor pollution from burning of biomass fuel.
  • Women are more influenced by environmental degradation than men.
  • Women have special problems with regard to water supply and sanitation.
  • Children are more vulnerable toward environmental impacts and child labours are exposed to hazardous occupations.

Considering the above facts, the objective of women and child welfare is :

To improve the social, economical, health and nutritional status of women.

To improve the physical, mental, intellectual, and nutritional status of children.

To safeguard the constitutional rights of women and children.

To create awareness regarding different women and child development program among the rural peoples.

To distribute free sanitary pads for underprivileged women and gilrs.

 

What we are going to do :

WEAW will continue to distribute free PAD BANKS throughout the country and will give trainings on menstrual hygiene and develop capacity for outreach and awareness campaigns to demystify menstruation among women and men. It is essential to raise awareness among religious, community and other leaders to support the participation of women and girls in decision that concerns their lives, and it is also important to work with women and men as well as girls and boys.
While some people are still reluctant to discuss it, menstrual hygiene has proven to be a powerful entry point to raise broader issues around such as –

  • Gender equalit.
  • Women’s and girls’ empowerment.
  • Sexuality education.
  • Sexual and reproductive health and rights.
  • Child marriage, fistula and female genital mutilation.
