Sanitary Napking Vending machine in Dalit Vasti and Tribal Area

For tribal and dalit women the reasons for not using sanitary napkins are many. The cost of sanitary napkins is very high and one napkin can be used only once. Some tribal areas have only one shop in the entire area, where as in some areas, there were no shops. The area shops did not sell sanitary napkins because there was no demand. The reason for no demand was that the males run the shop and women will not go to men to buy sanitary napkins for the cultural taboos. Vichakshan Foundation provides sanitary napkin vending machines in required areas. The Foundation will take care of the privacy of beneficiaries to avoid failure of the project.
