- Self-esteem and Mental Health Challenges: Girls' self-esteem and mental well-being can significantly impact their educational journey and personal life - Menstrual Health Awareness: Lack of awareness about menstrual health often leads to absenteeism among girls during their periods. - School Infrastructure: The availability of proper facilities and infrastructure plays a vital role in a child's academic performance and health - Sleep and Well-being: Adequate sleep is crucial for the physical and mental well-being of girls aged 11 to 18 - Hygiene and Sanitary Facilities: Girls dropping out of school is often linked to inadequate hygiene and sanitary facilities, especially during puberty. - Safe drinking water: Many schools in rural Telangana lack access to purified drinking water facilities, resulting in frequent student illnesses due to the consumption of unsafe water. These issues contribute to a cycle of absenteeism, poor academic performance, diminished self-care, inadequate sleep, frequent illnesses, emotional instability, heightened stress and anxiety, ultimately leading to the risk of depression and school dropout.

Holistic development of Girl Child through Hygiene Awareness
During our school support we have noticed students facing issues for essential stationery such as notebooks, pens, pencils, and school bags. Without these students were not able to participate fully in classroom activities, take notes, or complete assignments.
This issue is hampering their ability to learn effectively. The absence of stationery and school bags also had a psychological impact on them. They were feeling embarrassed, stressed, and demotivated when they lacked the necessary tools for their education.
With our academic support we impacted 4000 Girl children from 30 KGBV schools of Telangana district. We could see students participation in classroom activities very actively
Holistic Development Through Hygiene Awareness and Sanitary Kit to Girl Children
Most of our schools in rural Telangana, girls from low-income backgrounds face a myriad of challenges that hinder their academic progress and overall well-being. There's a critical need for menstrual health and hygiene awareness. Due to limited awareness, girls often miss school during their menstrual cycles, which further hampers their educational journey. This lack of awareness can also contribute to emotional imbalances, heightened stress, and anxiety.
We supported schools in addressing this critical challenge and breaking the cycle of taboo. We provided them with incinerators, sanitary napkins and deposit machines, very necessary resources along with awareness to ensure that these girls have a fair chance at a brighter future, unburdened by these obstacles.
We have Impacted 4000 Girl children by providing awareness and sanitary essentials to them and reduced absenteeism and improved concentration
Holistic Development Through Safe Drinking Water
One pressing issue is the lack of facilities for purified drinking water, leading to frequent student illnesses due to the consumption of unsafe water. This often results in a cycle of absenteeism, poor academic performance, and a general lack of interest in self-care.
The support we seek is aimed at addressing these critical challenges and breaking the cycle of adversity. Together, we can provide the necessary resources, awareness, and infrastructure to ensure that these girls have a fair chance at a brighter future, unburdened by these obstacles.
