2017 – Inauguration of the Flagship Asani Sanitary Napkin Production Center

Perhaps the most notable program to date, the Asani Sanitary Napkin Program was brought to reality in 2017, giving women in rural India the opportunity to fulfill their menstrual product needs in an accessible way while also providing them training and work opportunities in the Asani facilities. In its first year, the Asani program produced 120,000 sanitary products. The Desai Foundation had already been working in Menstrual Equity since 2012, but launched this unique and transformative program, and the Asani Sanitary Napkin brand in 2017.
