Shakti In Prisons

During 2020-21, the Shakti programme was introduced in the prisons of Haryana. This has been made possible with the collaboration of India Vision Foundation and knowledge partners. The vision is to introduce female inmates to menstrual hygiene management practices and to instil the attributes of hygiene and safe practices. The programme has been divided into three phases, the first part of which is to install sanitary napkin vending machines and incinerators across 16 prisons in Haryana benefitting over 1,000 women inmates. This was followed by 16 capacity-building and training sessions. We have installed vending machines and incinerators in 4 prisons, namely, Jhajjar, Rohtak, Karnal and Faridabad. A booklet was also devised for educational purposes, which will help the women to better understand the practices.
