6th March, India: Chingari, the world’s fastest-growing on-chain social app, has announced two days of paid menstruation leave per month for its female employees. The move of offering a 2 day paid leave per month is intended to recognize the difficulties that women face during menstruation and to empower them to prioritize their health.
The new policy, which goes into effect immediately, allows Chingari’s women employees to take two days of paid leave per month for menstrual-related issues. It is also an effort to combat the long-standing stigma associated with menstruation. This policy reflects Chingari’s commitment to creating a welcoming and inclusive workplace in which every employee is valued and treated with respect.
The decision by Chingari to implement menstrual leave is part of its larger initiative to support women’s health and well-being. The company has been promoting #GARI4NARI, a social impact initiative aimed at empowering women in India by providing financial assistance to those in need. The initiative, which was announced in 2022, has been a huge success, with thousands of women benefiting from the platform’s initiative.
Chingari’s women influencers and creators on average earn anywhere from INR 5,000 to 50,000 worth of GARI Social Tokens per month on the app by taking advantage of its popular LIVE and Audio streaming features.
Aside from in-app activities, team Chingari also enables its female creators by providing them with regular grooming and educational sessions that help them grow on the app. The app has also assisted housewives in earning money from the app, particularly in Tier 2, 3, and 4 regions.
The initiative has assisted thousands of women all over India in gaining access to education, starting their own businesses, and achieving financial independence through the GARI Mining Program. The #GARI4NARI ambassadors have also been promoting this initiative in their network and group, attempting to assist as many women as possible to become financially independent.
Sumit Ghosh, Co-founder & CEO of Chingari, commented on the new policy, saying, “We understand the importance of empowering women in the workplace and are dedicated to creating an inclusive and supportive work environment. We believe that this policy will assist our female employees in managing their health and well-being.”
“We are committed to making a positive difference in the lives of women across India by providing them with a platform that can help them become financially independent,” Ghosh said about the #GARI4NARI initiative.
As part of the Women’s Day celebration, Chingari has also partnered as an Associate Sponsor for a local Women’s Bike Rally on March 8th, which will attract over 1500 women. The Thane event is organized by Ms. Namrata Jadhav Bhosale, who is from Shivsena – Eknath Shinde Ghat.
