Women’s hygiene and sanitation is a public health issue in India that needs our attention. An estimated 300 million women and girls lack access to basic hygiene according to recent United Nations reports, and it’s difficult to imagine a solution to address this issue. How could we possibly help millions of women and girls without access to basic hygiene? The answer will surprise you.
The solution comes in the form of a hand sanitizer, body mist, hand soap, toilet seat sanitizer, and an intimate wash for women. Be. The Solution believes women themselves should become agents of change.
The discussion about women’s hygiene and sanitation is hardly ever an easy one. However, it’s on us, as Indian women, to keep that discussion going while making strides in the right direction. Spreading awareness and helping create opportunities are instrumental to giving women and girls access to basic facilities in India, but let’s not forget that we’re all in this struggle together. We can empower each other through simple choices in our everyday lives. Our rupees have the power to not only consume, but also to help others.
