Naari, Women Wellness

Naari feature2Naari is a social enterprise working in the space of Menstrual Hygiene Management. We endeavour to provide safe and hygienic periods for all women in sustainable and eco-friendly ways. Menstruation is a vast taboo in India where women often shy away from talking about it openly and freely among their families or peers. Owing to deep-rooted menstrual traditions and practices in society, women often have often face discrimination at various occasions in family, society and in their work place.

We focus on erasing menstrual myths and encouraging women to accept menstruation gracefully.
