Project 1: Menstrual hygiene Education & Personal Safety Training

During a research of “All for One foundation”, we found that the rate of absentees in school (Age group: 12 - 17) is 55% in urban and 85% in rural areas. 95% school going girls said it is uncomfortable for them to go to school or to travel during “Period” time due to abdominal pain and fear of leakage of the blood from rags. They cannot share it with anyone because of orthodox social perception. Lack of knowledge, taboos, myths is also a big barrier to menstrual hygiene as in this country a lot of people think period blood is impure.

To eradicate this menstrual hygiene problem, All For One Foundation is working in the deprived schools to provide the female students a hygienic life which aims to minimize their absentees in school as well as develop them as community leaders.

Talking about protection of the female child, All For One Foundation also conducts sexual assault awareness and personal safety training workshops where girls are made aware about body changes during puberty and are taught about safe and unsafe touch and what to do in events of unsafe touch. All For One Foundation also promotes women supporting each other and thus the girls are taught to confide with and support their female friends in time of distress

Under this project, we have 3 different programs: Sponsorship, Activation Program and Preparing Children for their First Period.

Project 2: Youth Leadership Development

Along with conducting sessions to raise awareness about menstrual hygiene, we try to create leadership skills among the students. All For One Foundation works for boosting up the confidence of the impoverished female students by giving them love and a sense of selfesteem and encourages them to impart the lessons learned from the sessions to their families and communities after school and thus reaching more people in need of the awareness.

Apart from that, we pick students lacking confidence and try developing their confidence and involve them to conduct the session for their senior students. This helps in boosting the confidence of the youngsters and develops the sense of responsibility within them. This adds a new step to their mental and personal growth and they become more eager in speaking up for the right thing and creating awareness among their community. This way, the teaching All For One imparts is not reaching few individual kids but the whole community the kids belong to. This confidence to speak up and know the difference between right and wrong helps them to protect themselves and speak up against injustice.

All For One Foundation helps a kid to become an Active Citizen.

Project 3: He for He and She

Educating girls will not help if we don't educate the boys too. Girls are not the only victims of sexual assault. Boys are too. And in most cases, harassment towards boys are topics that are laughed at. Boys remain even more silent than girls. But these kind of molestation leaves negative impact on the brain of the child. All For One Foundation thus took the responsibility to also educate boys about the puberty changes and safe touch and what to do if they face molestation.

Along with this, All For One Foundation also educates the boys about respecting girls and about the menstruation phase their female counterparts face and encourage boys to stand up to protect their female classmates while any adversities. Currently, All For One Foundation completed educating 98 schools in Bangladesh

Project 5: Ensuring Safe Health & Safe Life in Slums and Rural Areas

Apart from schools, All For One Foundation also holds educational sessions in slum and village areas of targeted towards the women. All For One Foundation has so far educated 31,000 women from the Korail Slum, Nakhalpara Slum and Kurmitola Geneva Camp of Dhaka. In the sessions, All For One Foundation makes the women educated about safe menstruation and menstrual hygiene, nutrition, family planning, reproduction health and also actively working against domestic violence, child abuse, child marriage, sexual harassment etc. While taking these sessions, we came to know of the domestic abuse these women face at home despite being employed. Many of these women are forced into sex during period or are forced to take implants and pills without any doctor consultation. A no from the women awards them with some harsh words and in some cases beating. All For One Foundation aims to educate men in this regard to create a better society.

Project 6: Ensuring Quality livlihood & Education

Education is a need and mandatory for every single child's development. But what about the children whose parents are sex workers? or children who are survivor of Humantrafficking? And also those where schools cannot go or those who have crisis with identity?

Project 9: Hand From Privileged to Underprivileged

Menstrual hygiene - a topic that is never really talked about in open forum. Period - a word that is regarded as nasty. But period is only natural. It gives a woman the power to give birth to a life. And hence, it's time to break the taboo and talk about period. There are many discrimination between the moneyed and the penniless. However, no woman in Bangladesh, whether she is privileged or living with poverty, passes a life without being in hesitation about her period. Menstrual hygiene education is the want of time.

And our campus activation is where we can bridge gap between men and women and between the Privileged and underprivileged. We held seminars and open booths in campuses talking about period, breaking the taboo, inviting the youth to work for a matter that no one talks about but needs to and create an empathy where the privileged feel the importance of helping out the underprivileged and extend their hand of support to ensure safe menstruation for girls of underprivileged community. We create campus ambassadors who continuously do seminars, open discussions in own campus every semesters.
