" I believe that menstruation is the essence of feminity and strength. Though menstruation is natural, there is a lot of stigma associated with even talking about it. I hope to make my community a place where we look at periods as empowering and beautiful. To be a part of Millennium Fellowship encourages and excites me to adhere to my goals. I also look forward to meet and seek inspiration from so many young leaders around the world. "
Millennium Fellowship Project: NEEV
Project Neev focuses on de-stigmatising menstruation, creating a community that can openly talk about periods, menstrual hygiene and health, use of sanitary products and coping with the shame associated with it.
Between the time of August and December, Project Neev mainly aims to reach around 150 individuals through online resources and educate them about menstruation.
Project Neev also aims to use social media platforms to raise awareness and lastly try and use crowdfunding in order to source sanitary products to individuals in need.
