A few Non-Governmental Organisations(NGOs) have joined hands together to make Afghan women self-reliant. These NGOs are currently teaching the Afghan women to make sanitary napkins so that it will be easier for them to get jobs. The NGOs along with United Nations Development Programme(UNDP) are organising workshops for these women in Malviya Nagar.
Around 25-30 women are being taught by Kamakhya, a sanitary pad making unit from September 6-8. The initiative has got good response from the women.
