On 15th October 2020, a new chapter was started in the field of Rural Menstrual Hygiene at the hands of Hon'ble Minister Smt. Smriti Irani ji in the form of a unique project titled "MY PAD MY RIGHT". Over a period of 3 years, in milestone based phases, one award winning sanitary pad making machine will be handed over to one well functioning SHG in each district of the country. When completed, this would be the largest such initiative ever undertaken in the nation by any single organization. The stress and focus is on creating livelihoods among SHG members along with making a dent in the very disturbing space of menstruation hygiene.

In a soulful and uplifting speech the Union Minister engaged with women SHG members across the country and encouraged them to move forward with pride and confidence. She was particularly effusive in her praise for NABARD for imagining a project as progressive and human as this.

Dr. Chintala, our Chairman promised to give a shape to this bold and inclusive programme.
This is also a bold step forward by NABARD's Micro Credit Development Department which tailored the programme within the contours of its LEDP (Livelihoods and Enterprise Development Programme).
