Project Baala is an impact oriented and youth-led initiative in India committed to raising awareness regarding menstrual hygiene. The organization focuses on menstrual education across different states in India, and pockets of Nepal, Ghana, and Tanzania. With the COVID-19 Pandemic, menstrual hygiene products, like sanitary napkins, have gone down the priority list of essential items. Project Baala dedicated its efforts to distributing over 9000 sustainable sanitary napkins (usable for 2 years) and plans to raise that number to 18000 by the end of this week.
