Aakar Innovations

Aakar Innovations Private Limited is a Social Enterprise. Aakar believes that true women empowerment is only possible when we create equal opportunities for women. To achieve this Aakar has developed a small scale production unit for sanitary pads, a ‘superior mini-factory’. It runs on simple technology that works in the challenging environments of rural India.
Through the set-up of a mini-factory both menstrual hygiene issues are addressed and improved as is social and economic impact realized.

“Through this partnership with Women on Wings, we want to enable more women to earn their own income that will give them greater financial means to improve their livelihoods. Economic independence for women means more children can go to school, more meals per day for their families and communities, and an overall better standard of living for them and future generations”
