Since initiating our Asani Sanitary Napkin Program, we’ve maintained our commitment to providing proper menstrual health education and hygienic products to our target communities. We’ve been able to reach thousands of women through this program, and making these services accessible to wider communities is a part of our commitment, which is why we are so thrilled to announce that this program has been extended to produce and distribute high-quality, low-cost Sanitary Napkins in Jhotwara, Rajasthan!
