The Arka Initiative is an organization working towards the advancement of sexual and reproductive wellbeing in Sri Lanka.
The Arka Initiative is an organization working towards the advancement of sexual and reproductive wellbeing in Sri Lanka. We have recently embarked on “The Sustainable Sanitation Project,” which aims to provide reusable sanitary pads to groups of underserved women in all districts of the country. Statics show that 70% of menstruating women in Sri Lanka do not use pads or tampons because they cannot afford it, and the organisation hopes that this project will help cause a small dent in these staggering statistics.
“The Arka Woman” is an event to launch the aforementioned project which will include the screening of an Oscar-winning short film, a conversation on all how women can menstruate safely and with dignity, as well as an in-depth view of Arka’s work in this space.
