Story: We have been selling tea, clothes in the local area to generate some revenue but due to competition, lack of technology, training & raw material and because of a saturated market, we could not do much in these areas. Also while selling tea, clothes we came across the idea of making rich and quality pads of low cost as it is as an important part of tackling menstrual health, as affordability is still the main barrier for the usage of pads in India.
Menstrual health in India is still largely governed by taboos and a lack of information. It needs to be addressed through social and behavioral change programs. There is little knowledge about the health consequences of using unhygienic methods for menstrual management.
The usage of cloth, which is a traditional method, in itself is not unhygienic and is also not a sustainable option, but it requires washing and drying in the sun. Most women in India do not feel comfortable with the washing and drying because of prevailing taboos, apart from lack of access to water also proving to be a problem.
Since we have a group of people who can’t perform normal tasks like others, we need an automated machine which will ease their effort in making Pads. But It comes at a huge cost which will not be possible without funding and help. While working on this project, we have got assistance from Governmental offices and they provided us with places to sell our products. We are looking forward to requesting some land as well in order to set up a factory for making sanitary pads.
