The main objectives of the project are to provide vocational training on Mask Making, Sanitary Napkin Making and Aya Nursing training for old age care for 28 educated indigenous tribal girls at Kashipur Block in Purulia district and in preparing them for dignified livelihood and mainstreaming in the civil society.

18 girls have undergone the training of making sanitary napkins and how to market and sell their product. The girls have started to earn. There is community building as educated women work with tribal women as well as adolescent girls. This in turn builds confidence/dignity among the trained girls. The sanitary napkin product helps to improve menstrual hygiene and reduction of disease among the women of the targeted community.  MGBK has contributed its share by purchasing upgraded equipment. Experts have been hired to conduct the training.

The trained girls are producing low cost sanitary napkin and it has been named as ‘Fit & Fine G’. In one packet there are 6 sanitary napkins at the cost of Rs.30/. The local market rate of same quality of sanitary napkin is Rs.42/-. Each of the trained girls are earning Rs.4000 per month. Local panchayats have come forward for extending marketing support.
