(Dharti Mata Sustainable Workshop)
Item Session 1
Theme Regional Issues, Global Impact
I began traveling to Nepal since 2009, and it was in Nepal that I first learned about the taboo surrounding menstruation and menstrual practices that marginalize women. In 2010, I bought my first reusable menstrual pad in Auroville, an eco village in South India. It was this simple pad and a simple idea that had changed my life since then. I began to lead volunteers to teach Nepali women about menstrual health, and the idea of reusable menstrual pads. At age 30, I decided to leave my 7-year-long career in the NGO sector and established the social enterprise named “Dharti Mata Sustainable Workshop”. The workshop employs rural Nepali women and produces reusable pads that are affordable to rural Nepali women. We are dedicated to empower women, and to develop sustainable products that are friendly to both women and the environment.
