Program

'Onpery Academy'

Summary

The 'Onpery Academy' Program provides (1) stakeholder-friendly educational materials (in the form of graphic novels and its video narration) on children's wellness (covering topics like menstruation, reproduction, physical safety, emotional safety and gender sensitivity); and (2) reusable period underwear for the infirmary, to academic institutions and guardians.

HOW schools may ASSOCIATE WITH THE PROGRAM?

For guardians to be aware of the graphicals and period underwear, the school can purchase a custom-made leaflet from Onpery, that mentions a small topic from the graphical novels, along with the school’s logo on it. Upon awareness, the guardians can further decide and get the graphical or the period underwear for their children. To know the quotation of the leaflet, please drop an email to Onpery.

Reach out to Onpery at onpery@careformlabs.com.

Schools can purchase an annual '365 Days Access Package' of video narrations of PeriodRoom™ and SafeRoom™ graphical content at a discounted rate on Onpery’s website. These narrations, available on the school’s online account at Onpery’s website, can be shown in regular classes or seminars using smart boards or projectors. Post-purchase, if there will be any content upgrades, it will automatically be reflected on their online account.

Who will conduct the session/seminar?

Onpery’s communication materials are not to replace a teacher/professional but to enable them to efficiently, conveniently and comfortably share the subject matter. The materials are self-sufficient to communicate the subject matter and the teacher/professional can mediate and help students with their queries wherever applicable.

Is there any demo available?

If one wishes to check the quality and content of the video narrations or conduct a single/limited session(s), then one may consider purchasing the listed ‘2 Days Access (Demo) Package’.

Benefits to guardians?

Guardians can access the same video narrations for free for their children. Upon school purchase, Onpery provides them with an exclusive 100% discount code, to share with the guardians to purchase/access the same content on the website. 

How school can communicate about the initiative to guardians?

Through a custom-made leaflet with the school’s logo!

Schools can communicate this initiative, with a discount code, to guardians through various channels, such as verbal announcements, SMS, emails, or parent-teacher meetings, but can’t share the code on public platforms. 

For efficient communication, the school can also consider purchasing a custom-made leaflet from Onpery, that mentions a small topic from the graphical novel(s), along with the school’s logo on it. To know the quotation of the leaflet, please drop an email to Onpery.

Reach out to Onpery at onpery@careformlabs.com in case of any queries.

For ‘limited quantity orders’, below 25 units, the school can make a purchase directly from Onpery’s website.

For ‘bulk orders’, from 25 units onward, the school can reach out to Onpery for a quotation. For ‘bulk orders’, the logo of the school can also be put on the graphic novel(s).

Schools can purchase innovative easier to use reusable Onpery® period underwear for their infirmary.

In case of blood spotting of a menstruator in school, not just the skirt/trouser but their underwear also gets wet and spoilt. In such cases, just replacing it with a new skirt/trouser and attaching a napkin to the blood-wet underwear is not enough. Hence, the school’s infirmary should have reusable period underwear along with the school dress for blood spotting cases. In the case of reusable period underwear, no other menstrual product would be required.

For ‘limited quantity orders’, below 25 units, the school can make a purchase directly from Onpery’s website.

For ‘bulk orders’, from 25 units onward, the school can reach out to Onpery for a quotation.

Problems

faced by schools (their teachers and staff) and guardians:

LACK OF MATERIALS

Lack of communication materials and friendly methodology to talk about sensitive topics with children.

Hesitant to talk

Teachers and guardians are hesitant to directly talk about sensitive topics directly with their children.

How to follow ‘Draft National Menstrual Hygiene Policy, 2023’?

Schools may lack alignment with the policy strategy in ‘Draft National Menstrual Hygiene Policy, 2023’.

Blood Spotting

In the case of blood spotting, usually schools just provide outerwear and sanitary napkins but no innerwear. In such a scenario, the menstruator has to attach the napkin to the wet blood-spotted underwear which is highly uncomfortable and doesn’t solve the spotting concerns completely.

"4. POLICY STRATEGY:

4.4 Promotion of education and awareness on menstrual hygiene

4.4.1 Awareness campaigns targeting menstruators to provide accurate information including options of products available, debunk myths and misconceptions and address social and gender-related challenges associated with menstruation.

4.4.2 Conduct awareness campaigns to sensitize communities, parents, teachers and other stakeholders about menstrual hygiene, encouraging open dialogue and fostering a supportive environment that eliminates stigma and discrimination.

4.4.3 Integrate material on menstrual hygiene into the school education curricula. The existing School Health and Wellness Programme is an excellent platform for the same.

4.4.4 Studies on effective strategies and approaches to menstrual hygiene education/awareness in educational institutions and communities, including curriculum development and pedagogical methods.”
