WE BELIEVE A SANITARY PAD
CAN RADICALLY TRANSFORM THE LIVES OF WOMEN AND GIRLS ALL AROUND THE WORLD.
Let's make some waves, together.
TO PROVIDE VULNERABLE WOMEN AND GIRLS WITH ACCESS TO HYGIENIC, COST-EFFECTIVE, EARTH-CONSCIOUS MENSTRUAL CARE AND EDUCATION — POSSIBLE THROUGH A SUSTAINABLE BUSINESS MODEL THAT ENSURES DIGNIFIED EMPLOYMENT FOR WOMEN ESCAPING UNTOLD ABUSE AND OPPRESSION.
"Women in poverty don't need one more thing to have to depend on others for. And the planet doesn't need one more non-disposable object. That's why the water hyacinth pad is so brilliant: it is clean, biodegradable, and enables women not only to be independent but also provides jobs for them locally in the manufacturing process."
— Dr. Holly C. Hoffman, MD
MUKTI , aptly named by our women workers, means liberation or freedom in Bengali. Mukti is taking place in Kolkata, India and is run by women escaping sex work, trafficking, untold abuse and oppression.
