ONSET of International Women’s Day, Netsurf Network, a leading direct selling company distributed sanitary napkins and Naturamore for Women – one of the bestseller products of the company to the girls of Sane Guruji Vidya Mandir School in Pune, Maharashtra.
Concepts such as menstrual hygiene are not spoken about openly in the public domain. This is the primary reason behind girls remaining ignorant and the prevalence of unhygienic menstrual practices, leading to health problems such as the risk of reproductive tract infections. Thus, creating awareness around it at an early age is extremely crucial. The students were happy to be part of such an activity that highlights the ill effects of not maintaining hygiene.
As part of the on-going CSR initiative, Netsurf is educating the girls in the deep remote tribal areas of Bihar and Maharashtra distributing the packets of sanitary napkins amongst them. Till date this activity has been conducted across Madhubani, Bihar and Jawhar in Palghar, Maharashtra wherein the company has distributed more than 3000 packets of sanitary napkins to deprived women. The company continues to provide one pack of sanitary napkins against every single Rang De product sold to these women. Rang De is a herbal colour cosmetic range under Netsurf Network, which comprises of four flagship products.
Netsurf, as a direct selling company in India, has always given abundant opportunities to empower women. In the past, Netsurf introduced a special project for women, called Project ASMITA that features business offers and considerations for women direct sellers adhering to their style of working. Under this project, various training programs are conducted for registered women on topics such as product training, retailing techniques and business FAQs. These training sessions continue to equip them to perform their respective business independently. Netsurf has successfully empowered around five lakh ASMITA Direct sellers who are the real-life SHEROES. There were about 11 ASMITAs who participated in this highly value-added event and made a meaningful contribution to this cause.
