Citadel - - EVENTS -

Court­yard by Mar­riott Pune Chakan un­der­took an ini­tia­tive for em­pow­er­ing girls and tak­ing care of their ba­sic needs – san­i­ta­tion and men­strual hy­giene. The ho­tel has tied up with Sorop­ti­mist In­ter­na­tional – Pune Metro East – In­dia, a club aim­ing to em­power women and girls to make their lives bet­ter and Sarva Seva Sangh - an NGO work­ing on holis­tic re­ha­bil­i­ta­tion of chil­dren at high risk. The ho­tel pro­vided men­strual hy­giene to all the fe­male chil­dren of Sarva Seva Sangh bought from Sorop­ti­mists In­ter­na­tional Club. Un­der one of their projects – Saheli San­i­tary Nap­kins, Sorop­ti­mists In­ter­na­tional Club man­u­fac­tures these san­i­tary pads. These biodegrad­able pads cost 1 per pad and is sold for 2. Court­yard by Mar­riott Pune Chakan bought 100 pack­ets of san­i­tary pads from them and do­nated to Sarva Seva Sangh. Court­yard by Mar­riott Pune Chakan has al­ways be­lieved in tak­ing care of the com­mu­nity, and this time it was to of­fer women an af­ford­able and safe hy­gienic prod­uct, which was just as im­por­tant as food and wa­ter. San­i­tary pads in In­dia are very ex­pen­sive and a large sec­tion of women pop­u­la­tion in In­dia can­not af­ford it. Saheli San­i­tary Nap­kins are only for 90 for a packet of 30 pads. It is a small step to of­fer a hy­gienic and healthy life­style.
