Kohima, Oct. 12 (EMN):
Rotary Club Kohima installed a sanitary napkin vending machine at Government High School, New Market, on Tuesday in Kohima.

Kezhokhoto Savi, president of Rotary Club Kohima, informed that it was a first kind in Kohima, where such a machine was handed over to the school for girls.

He stated that they have decided to hand over the vending machine freely to the school students preferably studying in a government run school.

Savi also reminded the students to be sincere in their attendance and further wished them the best in their studies.

Dr. Neisatuo Mero, former president of Rotary Club Kohima, gave a brief update about Rotary clubs in Nagaland. He informed that in Nagaland, there are three Rotary clubs in Nagaland — Kohima Rotary Club, Dimapur Rotary Club and Mokokchung Rotary Club. He informed that altogether, there are more than 100 Rotorians in the state.

Kevino Savino, while giving a demonstration on how to operate the machine, informed that after inserting either a two rupee coin or five rupee coin into the machine, a sanitary pad is automatically dispensed.

She informed that once the pads are used, they could be disposed off within a concrete incinerator, which is attached with the sanitary napkin vending machine.

Ayie Yhome, the headmaster of Government High School, New Market, admitted that they were fortunate to receive such facility which could be of great help to the girls studying in the school. While thanking the Rotary Club Kohima for their initiative, he hoped that the girls would make the best use of the machine.
