We would all agree that menstrual hygiene practices followed by the rural womenfolk in India are rather primitive and very unhygienic. Women are unaware of the availability of sanitary napkins and their usage or find sanitary napkins unaffordable. Resulting from this ignorance, they often resort to hay, sand, used and worn out cotton-clothes, etc. as napkins when on their periods. 

In an endeavor to improve the menstrual hygiene habits of women in rural and semi-urban Delhi and regions around it, we partnered with the other social organizations and corporates as follows - 

1. We partnered with ENACTUS, who helped us procure sanitary pads at affordable prices from their partners in service. These pads were distributed in rural and semi-urban areas. We, in turn, helped ENACTUS by helping them reach out wider masses to spread awareness about hygienic practices and doing demonstrations about the same. 

2. Johnson & Johnson, as part of their CSR initiatives, supplied napkins to us at subsidized prices and we distributed these napkins to the needy.


Water and Sanitation are two key aspects to living a healthy life. We ensure that we get this message across to as many people as possible and at the same time tell them how they should make use of the water that comes to their homes. 

- To sensitise people on the importance of conservation of water and safe-drinking water.
-  SPOWAC educates people on the proper method of hand wash and personal hygiene.
- Rallies, Painting competitions, workshops and demonstrations are commonly held to promote the cause.

So far, about 2600 people have benefitted from this project initiated by us. 


Initiated in 2014, Project MAMTA organized by SPOWAC has helped tackle a terminal disease like tubercolosis at the grassroot level.
