Sukhibhava works with marginalized women and adolescent girls, to empower them through awareness and de-stigmatization in a scalable and replicable manner. Sukhibhava directly works on building awareness with women and girls and also works with influencers like men, boys & teachers to create positive socio-cultural environments. We believe this will eventually lead to an increase in demand for the infrastructure and products like toilets, access to water, menstrual hygiene products and soap leading to systemic change. In a largely products driven menstrual hygiene space, Sukhibhava believes access & affordability to products is one part of the issue while the larger issue is lack of access to information and behavior change.
We are currently working with women & girls in Karnataka, Maharashtra, Uttar Pradesh, Jharkhand, Rajasthan, and Tamil Nadu. We have also kickstarted the first cohort of "The Period Fellowship".
