** The Period Fellowship aims to bring together dynamic women, men and trans persons from diverse backgrounds to create awareness on menstruation and menstrual hygiene among women and girls, and men and boys in urban and rural India, during the course of 15 months.
** The fellows will work to ensure that they build an enabling ecosystem in the communities to reflect upon their personal practices, while exploring concepts like hygiene, menstrual cycle, PMS and superstitions.
** We are looking to build a repository of knowledge on experiences gathered from around the country on menstruation and issues that surround it.
** Through this teaching-learning experience, our fellows will understand where communities stand in terms of knowledge on menstruation, simultaneously developing teaching, managerial and leadership skills during the course of the fellowship on a personal level.
** While this is a working fellowship, is it simultaneously a leadership program which via activities through the year, will enable the fellows to build capacities to hone their potential to be long term leaders for menstruation and allied social issues.
