The ‘Making periods normal’ program, in partnership with Simavi, Rutgers and Women on Wings, aimed to create access to sanitary pads for 165,000 girls and women in Munger and Bhagalpur in Bihar.
The program started in 2014 and had duration of three years. It was successfully finalized in October 2017.

Women on Wings was responsible for the availability of the pads and for co-creating 815 jobs in sales and distribution of pads.

Each of the three partners had their own local partners in India. The local partner in India of Women on Wings is Dharma Life.
The program was financially supported by the Dutch Postcode Lottery.

“Women on Wings has helped to improve the lives of more than 200,000 families in rural India. By sharing knowledge and skills, it enables women to earn their own living. A wonderful example of helping people make a better future for themselves and their communities.”
