Bangalore based Sukhibhava has developed low-cost and high-quality menstrual hygiene products, and uses the same to set up women-led entrepreneurships, thereby facilitating their empowerment. The project will focus on a planned community-embedded menstrual hygiene project
The project will entail the participation of a large number of slum dwelling women and girls who will be offered trainings and workshops on menstrual health and hygiene. A selection of women will be offered entrepreneurship training and will be facilitated towards leading a network of community-based entrepreneurs who will engage in menstrual health advocacy as well as the sale of Sukhibhava’s menstrual hygiene products. The process will be incentivised to maximise outreach and thus impact, and will ultimately hope to better standards of menstrual health and hygiene among women who live in informal settlements. Sukhibhava will be able to showcase a unique model of women-led and health-centred social entrepreneurship through this project.
