Customize This Project

In a country where women have reached the frontiers of space, basic necessities such as access to clean drinking water, toilets, basic education, fundamental knowledge about legal and civil rights and products for feminine hygiene are still unavailable to women in rural areas.

Project Asmita aims at addressing these important issues impacting rural women through dialogue and awareness.


1. Awareness Camps
Under Project Asmita, several awareness camps and empowerment presentations will be
delivered in rural areas and urban slums through field partners (NGOs & Volunteers). The
presentations will touch upon topics of menstrual health and hygiene, sexual awareness,
maternal and reproductive health, and good touch – bad touch. The women will also be made
aware of resources to reach out for help and government schemes and provisions focused on
women’s welfare and development
2. Asmita Kits
At every awareness camp, Asmita kits will be distributed among women following the
presentation. Such a kit would include female hygiene products and a booklet consisting of information on safe hygiene practices, helpline numbers, government schemes, and self-help
literature.
3. Self Help Groups
Creation of self-help groups so that women can collectively work towards addressing the
issues that endanger their welfare and take charge of their health and well-being. Each
workshop will identify a local “leader” and will end with the “Asmita kit” as a gift, with easy
self-help material and regular follow up routine. KarmaKonnect will partner will local
panchayats, NSS volunteers and NGOs to expand the reach of the program in different states.

 

The Asmita Kit that amounts to Rs.300/- each consists of biodegradable sanitary napkins, soap, DIY on how to make your own pad, leaflets with information regarding beneficial government schemes and helpline numbers.
