In addition to our Masks of HOPE program, through which we train women in rural India to sew 2-ply masks from their homes, we have also procured an ear loop machine. We heard that many companies were having difficulty attaching the ear loops to machine-made masks and have been working to help solve this problem in order to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in India.

We are more passionate than ever about raising awareness about menstruation and making sanitary napkins available to ALL women and girls - because periods don’t stop for pandemics! Through our Asani Napkin Program, we train women in rural India to manufacture high-quality, low-cost sanitary napkins and to distribute them in their communities, simultaneously spreading awareness and education about proper menstrual hygiene practices.
