    This fundraiser will benefit

    Maahila India

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

Hi! We’re माँhila, a group of 6 high school graduates from Bangalore, India. Menstruation, as most of you may know, is the result of a young woman’s ability to bear children - to be capable of being a mother. This inspired our name, which essentially combines ‘Maa’ meaning Mother, and ‘Mahila’ meaning woman.

In these uncertain times, many young underprivileged women have faced hardships due to an inability to procure sufficient sanitary napkins. Together, we hope to raise funds so that we can source sustainably produced cloth sanitary napkins which are REUSABLE, to distribute to women in orphanages across Bangalore, hoping to reduce their struggles associated with menstruation as much as possible.

We are starting our journey with the help of EcoFemme - a women-led social enterprise that strives to create social and environmental change by revitalising menstrual practices. We plan on supplying 170 kits to girls and female staff members in 6 orphanages across Bangalore. Each kit costs 500 Rupees and contains 4 pads in it; these pads can be used for upto 3-5 years. They are soaked and washed like normal underwear and require no additional cleaning methods.

We hope that you will join us in making this endeavour a success!

~ Team माँhila
