Millennium Fellowship Project: Obadh

The thought of starting Project occurred to me when i tried to address the Problems a female student from Chittagong University has to face.We have a huge campus with about 10,000 female students.But at the time of need,One need to travel about 1km before they find a store that provides sanitary pads. Moreover, It Isn't financially convenient to buy a whole packet of sanitary pad when you need only 1/2. We have 7 existing vending machines in different faculties,all of which are non-functional in operation. Many faculties don't even have vending machines.
our project will have three goals.
1.Reviving the existing vending machines.We have a volunteer team that would be responsible for the regulating them and promoting their use on campus.
2.We would implement a Sanitary Napkin Box program,where each class would have representatives who will have a key to the locked napkin-filled box,placed in a female washroom.If anybody needs a napkin,she can contact any of those representatives who would help her purchase the pads from that box.This system will be self-sustaining for each Department.
3.In this remote location of Chittagong University, students often do not get medical assistance during their menstruation.There are several medical helplines that students don't know about,that provide free medical assistance.We will aggregate them and spread them on the campus
