These days where fulfillment of unwanted needs and wants of humans seem next to impossible, various foundations and organisations are working for the welfare of people and that too without any selfishness.
Today, I have a story to tell about a foundation that works with a belief to give back to society. While the lion's share of youth is busy having the time of their life, Yogita Gawli, Founder of Kara Foundation, started the journey of social entrepreneurship. The core focus of her organisation lies in providing health and hygiene to women and girls in the country.
Kara Foundation is the name behind such a positive initiative. The team aims that no girl in Maharashtra misses her school or college during her monthly cycle due to the lack of a hygienic sanitary solution.
Every woman associated with the foundation gets a chance to work on projects that can be delivered from home itself.
The team of dedicated individuals launched their new project ```U-VATI``` on 17th July 2017 under which they adopted 551 girls from 11 BMC schools in December 2017. They then decided to donate sanitary napkins to them that too for a year.
Under U-Vati project, the women who are in need of work manufacture the pads of regular size, skin friendly, biodegradable and safe quality.
It has been surveyed that the lack of cheap and hygienic sanitary solutions for the menstrual cycle for 80% of the women in our society gives rise to innumerable ailments and hardships right from cervical cancer to kidney failure.
If you have something to say about the great initiative that this foundation has taken, let us know in the comment section below. And you can also visit the Facebook page of the foundation here.
