In collaboration with our twin club project leader Rotaract Club of SD College Ambala / India (D.3080) , we did the 1st phase of Project Red in Turkey/Gaziantep at Sarısalkım Middle School , on 19 November. Our project aims at raising awareness on menstruation and hygiene and this project was sponsored by Gaziantep İpekyolu Rotary Club. Rotarian Doctor Mrs.Jülide Aksoy provided hygiene seminar and students and their mothers joined the seminar. Then we distributed hygiene kits and sanitary pads. We do not want girls to miss the school because they fail to afford sanitary pads. The opening of our project was honored by the attendance of Rotary District 2430 Governor Altan Arslan. This is a sustainable project and we will keep distributing more hygiene kits & pads and providing more health seminars.
