Amid International Women’s Day, Baazi Games, an Indian online gaming platform joined hands with the initiative, ‘Project the Power of Periods’ to work towards women empowerment and educate them about menstrual hygiene.
As part of the initiative, the company leveraged the collective power of its women leaders to educate, engage and inspire school girls on healthy living and progressive practices.
The initiative was organised with the support and assistance from the Department of Education, Delhi government and Baazi Sports Foundation (non-profit arm of Baazi Games focusing on social causes) along with partner NGOs (Stand Sustainable Foundation and Shashi Kiran Charitable Trust).
Navkiran Singh, Founder, CEO, Baazi Games, said, “Every year, around 23 million Indian girls drop out of school due to a lack of menstrual hygiene management facilities, such as clean restrooms with running water and disposal bins, as well as a dearth of sanitary napkins and awareness about the same. India is still witnessing severe resistance in being able to break the notions around menstruation. Hence, we have always believed in instilling a sense of empowerment that should be associated with Periods and educating them.”
