Head Master took initiative for installing vending machine for sanitary napkins!2008: The local people were grief-stricken on the burning-ghat. Family members of the dead teen-aged girl were crying. And the Head Master took an oath on that burning-ghat that he would change the pathetic condition.
Krishnachandrapur High School of Sundarban area in South 24-Parganas district of West Bengal. The school is co-educational, but no toilet facility was earlier available for girls. As a result, during those uncomfortable days of the month, most of the girl students didn't come to school. The girl Ananya came to school, but suffered due to unhygienic condition and use of unclean clothes. She died without proper medical treatment due to high level of infection.
The Head Master started running from pillar to post-in every Government departments. Within one year he arranged to construct two separate urinals & toilets for boys and girls.. His job was not over. He started knocking the doors of every corporate house of Kolkata. Continuous effort has now bore fruit. A very big corporate house has installed a vending machine in the school on the birthday of Ananya in August, 2016 under Corporate Social Responsibility scheme.
The job of Mr. Chandan Maity, the Head Master of the school, is not yet over. He has now initiated a campaign of using sanitary napkins for the ladies and girls of the village and nearby areas.
