Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia becomes the face of “NO Spot Campaign” by SikhAid Charitable Trust; promotes menstrual hygiene
In order to undo the stigma and negative connotations around Menstruation, Nimrit Kaur Ahluwalia in association with SikhAid Charitable Trust together raise awareness to promote menstrual hygiene, and inspire girls & women to ditch cloth & make Sanitary Pads their best friends.
SikhAid Charitable Trust, a non-profit organisation founded in 2020 during the first wave of Covid-19 introduced ” NO Spot Campaign”, not only Nimrit became the “Face of the Campaign”, she personally distributed a pack of 3 Sanitary napkins to the girls & women in slums & demonstrated its use & educated them about the importance of its use.
A champion of mental health, physical fitness & now the queen of menstrual hygiene awareness, Nimrit states that many times, lack of education, age-old taboos and limited or no access to hygienic menstrual products can lead to women practicing poor menstrual hygiene during their period which can lead to multiple infections such as reproductive issues, urinary problems & overall health issues. Not only is this detrimental to the overall health and wellness of the gender, but it also dampens the progress of society as we strive to bring about educational, health, and overall status opportunities for girls and women across the country. It prevents millions of girls from achieving their full potential and chasing their dreams.
“I feel that nothing should come in the way of young girls achieving their full potential. This Menstrual Hygiene Day, let’s talk about periods openly and help women and girls most in need get through these trying times” says Nimrit
Requesting her fans to join her, she says “Lets come together and help women and girls most in need get through their period with safe and hygienic protection. I believe every women and girl deserves a safe and healthy period”
