Ensure better & healthy future.

The poverty rate in Bangladesh is 24.30 percent, with 42% living below the poverty line after Corona. Buying sanitary products like pads or napkins is a luxury for the average person, with each pad costing 9-16 taka. Swasti began handing out napkins and encouraging women to maintain menstrual hygiene through education sessions, believing that a woman's health directly affects her family.

Target group
May 2023
We hope to see people having adequate reproductive health literacy, leadership skill, entrepreneurship skill etc. An educated and healthy mother will raise a healthy generation. We also want that all underprivileged people will have an access to economy and get a chance to change their fate.

About the innovation

Why did you create this innovation?

We live beside the targeted area. Day to day we observe many underprivileged women are living unhealthy life; they have no access to economy. Even some of them have given birth of autism child. We saw an opportunity to make their life easy and safe by taking sessions, providing product creation training etc. So we came forward to ensure women's life easier.

What does your innovation look like in practice?

We had surveyed and launched a pilot project in 2021. After reviewing the results we started working in a full length. For the last 5 months, all of them are using sanitary pad and participated in four interactive sessions taken by doctors, experts.

How has it been spreading?

We are expecting at least 50 successful entrepreneurs among those underprivileged women approximately in 2-3 years and they will sustain their eligibility to develop their own community.

If I want to try it, what should I do?

We will be very happy if anyone finds our work implementable in his community. To know more about our project he can email us -
