Period related situations can make women feel unconfident and uncomfortable especially in working environments. However, vending machines with the right products can be just what you need in many cases, not only for sanitary needs but for other similar situations.
Delhi University Student Union has been given approval by Delhi University to place 32 sanitary napkin machines in as many colleges. Each of these machines can be accessed by students.
Kunal Sherawat in a conversation with DU Express said¬†‚ÄúAs per our research and data procured, we have found that 65-70% of the total students across the DU are females. Also, 15 colleges are ‚Äògirls only college‚Äô under DU. In addition to that, we also have females including teachers, admin, staff etc. Our main aim to launch and install sanitary napkin vending machines are‚Äì affordability, eradicating social taboo associated with it, easy accessibility and last but not the least awareness among the youth.‚Äù
When asked why did you came up with this idea? Kunal said ‚ÄúWe came up with the idea of sanitary napkin machines for a social cause and an initiative to help as many students as we can.‚Äù
‚ÄúBy 28 August 2018 sanitary napkin machines will be installed in DU colleges.Also we have acquired 32 machines,we will cover all DU colleges.‚Äù Kunal added.
It is a step towards betterment and many female students of DU colleges will be benefitted from the initiative.
