Breaking the Silence Campaign has changed the narrative on menstruation not just in India but globally

* * * Donate generously to the award winning campaign that reaches the remotest villages and communities often left behind * * *

We cannot give tax exemptions on your donations but we give you deep contentment of genuine, far reaching and impactful work in the villages that lie beyond the government and NGOs' radar.

'Breaking the Silence' has worked from the frontlines, disseminating awareness at the village, district and national level, developing leadership at different levels, sharing best practices from around the globe with respect to sanitary products, disposal mechanisms, sanitation and hygiene, assessing WASH infrastructure and facilities, advocacy with the government of India and the media positioning menstrual hygiene as an entry point to address gender inequality and sharing the current national dialogue on menstruation bringing policies, guidelines and call to action of different ministries in the government of India.

The campaign is not an organization but an individual initiative run on personal savings or support from individuals and is a dedicated effort to build people's movement to 'break the silence' on things that matter to us.

Please donate generously for the work in 2018-19 to reach more corners of the world, more people in remote regions and more voices to be mentored to speak out.Reach me at urmila.chanam@gmail.com

Hi Urmila,

Thanks for sharing your fundraising initiative. Maybe you could get more donations if you went through Global Giving, GoFundMe, Kiva.org? I'm sure you've probably thought about these avenues, but I wanted to throw the idea out there, just in case, so you can get the most funding possible to make the greatest impact possible. Keep us posted on your successes, and good luck:)

Dear sister Jane,

I am so thankful for the links. I will work on them this week. I hope I can come up with more ideas to raise funds for my work. Thanks for wishing me courage; without it not a step can be taken. Courage to me, you and all our sisters world wide. Let us find resource but be a resource to ourselves and others too.

Gender equal is humanity and let the hormnes balance in our bodies do good to our health dear you are great continue to share.

Gender equality is an aspiration in my country right now. Women contribute just 24% to the labour of the country because structural inequalities pull women down. Its so important to infuse in young girls confidence and make them believe they are equals before patriarchy is accused. Thank you sister for your warm wishes. Wishing you luck.

Love
