Braille book on menstrual hygiene launched in Odisha
A book in Braille has been launched in Odisha to give lessons in menstrual hygiene for blind girls.
Around 2,500 such books will be distributed among young blind girls across the state.
This is an initiative taken by an Indian NGO called Practical Action. The aim is to improve their economic independence and social integration.
The NGO wants to make sure that there are sufficient and efficient efforts to make sure that girls across caste, class, economic condition and physical ability have access to information.
Practical Action has produced audio books for blind girls, as well as video-books in sign language for deaf and speech impaired young girls in Odisha.
The initiative helped more than 6,000 young girls.
There are more than 2 lakh blind people in Odisha. Almost 30,000 of them are students.
