Sorting & Minor Repairs
This is where what you give, comes first.. Here the team examines every unit of cloth very carefully to sort it into various categories like wearable, un-wearable, repairable, age, gender etc. The goal is to ensure that the material matches as closely as possible to the receiver’s needs and dignity.
Creating MY Pad
Making clean cloth ‘MY Pad’ from surplus urban cotton cloth, providing familiar, eco friendly cloth pads to the last women in rural and slum India.
More than 10 different kinds of kits/packs of material are carefully designed keeping in mind the needs of specific stakeholders like Family kits, School kits, Rahat disaster relief kit, Aaganwari kit, Labourer kit, Menstrual hygiene kit etc. Nothing is a one of, everything is put together with a lot of care and attention to nurture and strengthen the last person and his dignity.
