Providing access to sanitary pads at the doorstep.

Myna Mahila Foundation

Empowering women to speak about issues they are most afraid to discuss aloud, like the chatty Myna bird. 

We employ women from urban slums in Mumbai to manufacture and sell affordable sanitary pads back into their communities, improving menstrual hygiene, providing stable employment, and building a trusted network. 

Menstruation challenges in India

Women face challenges accessing sanitary pads:  male-run medical stores, unaffordable costs and stigma and shame associated with menstruation.

We employ. We improve menstrual hygiene. We build women’s networks.

The Myna Mahila Foundation Model

We employ local women to manufacture sanitary pads and sell them door to door in Mumbai’s slums.
