Vision and Mission

LOVE & CARE aimed at breaking the silence on menstruation and menstrual hygiene in the region.

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.

Finally, perceptions of menstruation affect how many cultures perceive girls. Starting to menstruate is often viewed as a sign of maturity, meaning girls have reached a potentially marriageable age. Yet early marriage significantly increases the risk of child pregnancy, repeated pregnancy without adequate birth spacing, and complications such as obstetric fistula.
Despite the veil of secrecy shrouding menstruation, menstrual hygiene management provides a powerful entry point to empower women and girls, dispel myths, change practices and remove restrictions.
With this in mind, we aim to eliminate all forms of discrimination against women, including discrimination based on social norms surrounding menstruation that harm the physical integrity and human rights of women and girls. And to provide and educate them about proper Menstrual Hygiene, and to distribute free sanitary napkins all over the country in the reach of the needy.
