Best Practices

Bollywood choreographer Sandip Soparrkar has adopted 2000 underprivileged girls with the support of LetsAllHelp and will support their requirement for sanitary pads for one year.  Sandip, has joined Letsallhelp.org as their Change Maker in their quest to achieve their goal - “No one sleeps hungry or be void of basic personal hygiene.” As a first step in that direction, Sandip has decided to adopt 2000 girls for their hygiene needs for a year.The hygiene needs will be provided by one of the leading manufacturers of sanitary pads in India – M/s. Wonderize

Sandip Soparrkar Said, “Menstruation is considered a taboo to even speak about in India, so imagine the reaction to the idea of a man adopting women to propagate genital hygiene, it surly is shocking for many but, I believe we dancers are the doors to out society, we show what is needed and how it can be done. We all are aware that poor genital hygiene has been found to be an important factor for the development of dysplasia and cervical cancer, and the use of pads made from reused cloth increases that risk. I am thrilled that through letsallhelp.org we will now be able to inculcate the importance of genital hygiene to these women and through them help many more.”

Letsallhelp.org, a social impact startup which provides a transparent online platform that connects donors to the underprivileged launched their operations one month ago. In order to help tackle this problem, Mumbai based startup Letsallhelp.org, has launched its online social impact platform LetsallHelp.org. They provide a simple and transparent online social impact platform with zero fees to take care of basic food & hygiene needs of kids, women, men and elderly at orphanages, old homes, shelters and unaided schools in India.
