Priyamani has been drawn to various causes and one very close to her heart is “Help a Girl Stay at School”. A campaign which is spear headed by Habitat for Humanity India. Every year 23 million girls, in India drop out of school after reaching puberty. The lack of functional toilets, lack of sanitary pads, and awareness on menstrual health and hygiene are keeping girls away from school and make them vulnerable to various infections which left unaddressed, affects reproductive health and their overall health. Menstruation is one of the major reasons for girls to miss schools. It is critical for our girls to break free of shame and constraints attached to menstruation. Due to lack of improved sanitation units, young girls fear going to school during menstruation for the fear of being shamed.
