Sato Leo! is a phrase that refers to Sanitary towels today. As such we provide Sanitary Towels on every session we visit the schools. We through partnerships with organizations like Chandaria Industries and well wishers make sure that we have a year’s supply of sanitary towels to all the students in the program. Besides, during the visits, our female colleagues underscore the need for observing hygiene and demonstrate how to use the Towels. Most importantly they remind the ladies that it is okay to be girls. This raises their self esteem.
