  Success story of woman VLE Bathula Manju from Ranga Reddy, Telangana

VLE Bathula Manju has overcome all odds to embark on a bold path to bring about extraordinary change in the lives of girls and women of her village who have long suffered due to societal taboos and cultural stereotypes regarding menstruation.

Keeping in mind the problems faced by adolescent girls and women in rural parts of the society due to use of unsafe products during periods, Manju took up responsibility to improve their menstrual health by providing them sanitary napkins, which are both hygienic and affordable in their vicinity.

With the assistance of CSC SPV, she established a sanitary napkin manufacturing unit (MMU) at Balapur village in Ranga Reddy district of Telangana, to manufacture affordable, hygienic and eco-friendly sanitary pads. Her MMU has also provided employment for 20 village women, who apart from earning their livelihood have also become agents of change in their society.

Manju’s MMU manufactures 1300-1400 napkins on a usual day. So far they have manufactured more than 18,000 napkins, with each piece costing Rs. 5.

In this quest to make girls and women start using these hygienic pads, Manju and her team have been running intensive awareness programmes in schools college and other educational institutes with the help of Gram Panchayat, ASHA and Anganwadi workers. They have organised special awareness camps on menstrual hygiene in slum areas and also distributed free napkins to tribal girls and women to let them realise the benefits of using hygienic napkins.

In addition to this, Manju has been organising awareness camps on breast cancer for women in her village through the help of ‘Bharosa’ project of the government of Telangana. For her contribution to the society, Manju has become a role model for the villagers.
