Since the launch of the project in Maharashtra, the Desai Foundation has been training and employing women for the production and distribution of Asani Sanitary Napkins. Currently, a total of 8 women are working in the production unit. These women are from the target and neighboring villages in the Nanded district. The training for women and girls on sales and distribution is on-going. In just two months, these women were able to produce 114,000 pads (14,250 packets), which are being distributed in the communities. We are proud that this program is meeting our expectations and impacting the lives of many in rural Maharashtra.
