Millennium Fellowship Project: Surkh
Surkh is an initiative by the Women Empowerment Cell (WEC) of Punjab Engineering College, Chandigarh. It aims to advance Sustainable Development Goal 5: Gender Equality.
Surkh aims at increasing awareness of menstrual health & hygiene through student-led initiatives. Menstrual health continues to be a stigmatized topic in many areas across the country, especially rural areas. Through Surkh, we hope to facilitate the de-stigmatization of conversations around menstrual health, and also encourage the use of sustainable menstrual products.
