Unipads India Pvt Ltd

Business partner since September 2020

Unipads India Pvt Ltd empowers underprivileged women and girls to manufacture reusable sanitary cloth pads, thus providing them and their families a source of livelihood.

It empowers women to distribute Unipads’ reusable sanitary pads to other women living in the rural and semi urban areas. It not only makes the product available to women and girls at a reasonable price and convenient manner, but also provides employment to women who work as distributors, so called ‘kalyani’s’.

Unipads is not business, not an enterprise; it is a family. A family which unites founders, investors, employees, customers and volunteers to a common cause of access to menstrual hygiene and women empowerment. Unipads has distributed its pads amongst more than 800,000 women nationally and internationally, thus helping them achieve menstrual hygiene.

Unipads collaborates and engages with national and international organizations that have similar vision and work in the same segment by supplying its sanitary pads, share knowledge and build capacity to achieve mutual goals of women health and women empowerment. Women on Wings and Unipads collaborate on their joint mission of co-creating employment opportunities for women in rural India.

At the start of the collaboration, Unipads provides work to 102 women who in return help their families move a step towards achieving financial stability.

“Fantastic experts, board members, employees and other stakeholders support us in our work and share the same ambition: to take rural families out of poverty by creating employment for women.”
