Bringing Sanitary Napkins to the slums of Kolkata

Empowering women starting at womanhood

Kreativ Works lead a series of workshops training the young women of New Light (a Kolkata based NGO) in Human Centered Design so that they could be social entrepreneurs and agents of change.  The challenge was to innovate new ways to educate young women and give them access to basic feminine hygiene products in a location where most women can not afford them and where young women have little to no understanding of their reproductive system.  The shame and confusion often leads to them terminating their education early and makes them victim to lives of servitude and human trafficking.
