Training on menstrual health held in Noklak

A three-day training on “menstrual health, hygiene and waste management” organised by We The Change (WTC) India in collaboration with Miraculum Society Nagaland (MSN) at various schools across Noklak district culminated on September 8.
In a press release, Miraculum Society Nagaland (MSN) informed that during the trainings, We The Change (WTC) founder, Naaz Farheen highlighted the gathering about We The Change (WTC) India and how it has been working towards breaking stereotypes around menstruation.
Farheen said We The Change (WTC) initiative supports five verticals – menstrual health, hygiene and waste management, women entrepreneurship, youth leadership programme, trans for nation and consent for children.
Emphasising on how Noklak being one of the newer districts in the Indo-Myanmar border had little to no access to menstrual hygiene management, she said the drive was aimed to help educate and create awareness about menstrual health, hygiene and menstrual waste management in the area.
Farheen said We The Change (WTC) India’s ultimate goal was to reach people and places that have no access to menstrual education and ensure that they have access to basic menstrual necessities.
Over the course of three days, the team visited St. Paul School, Holy Angel School, Christian High School, Govt School Noklak Village, High School Noklak and community at Pangsha Village.
The team also distributed menstrual hygiene kits and menstrupedia mini comic books along with menstrual hygiene management training.
