In a joint effort to drive positive change in the lives of underprivileged adolescent girls, Star Ceramics, a renowned manufacturer of premium tiles and sanitaryware products in Bangladesh, has partnered with Shaathi, a pioneering social enterprise specializing in reusable sanitary napkins. This innovative collaboration has led to the creation of the 'Safe Haven' campaign, with the goal to raise awareness about safe hygiene practices during menstruation and provide sustainable solutions to girls in need. Since its inception, the campaign has been dedicated to reaching out to young girls in marginalized communities. The core objective is to break down the barriers that hinder their access to proper menstrual hygiene education and resources. Through 'Safe Haven,' Star Ceramics and Shaathi are not only providing knowledge about safe practices but also addressing the lack of access to sanitary products that many girls face. A number of schools have been transformed into safe spaces equipped with 'Pad Banks.' These 'Pad Banks' house reusable sanitary napkins that are available for any girl who requires them within the school. The schools benefiting from this initiative include: • Shantibag High School • South Zone Pre-Cadet School and College, Vatara • Ahmedbagh Adarsha High School, Ahmedbag, Basabo • Fatema Tuz Zohra Mohila Madrasha, Rampura • Ideal Kindergarten & High School, Korail • Rampura Ekramunnesa Girls' High School, Rampura • Maa-Moriom KinderGarten & High School, Korail • I.P.H School & College, Mohakhali • Dweep Ideal School, Solmaid Sarkar Bari, Vatara • Patshala, Korail On August 24, 2023, the 10th 'Pad Bank' of 'Safe Haven' campaign was held at Pathshala Korail, setting an example of the transformation that can occur when businesses prioritize the well-being of their communities. The impact has been profound. The 'Safe Haven' campaign serves as a beacon of hope, illuminating the path towards a brighter, healthier future for these young girls. It showcases the power of collaboration between socially responsible organizations and the impact that can be achieved when resources are channeled toward creating positive change in society. Through the dedication of Star Ceramics and Shaathi, the lives of countless young girls are being positively impacted, fostering a more inclusive and equitable society for all.
