About
Sumati Joshi and Urvi Talaty are the founders of Mission Sanscar, a social venture that will work in Mumbai, India to eliminate the restrictions, shame, and impact on school attendance and success that accompanies the onset of women’s menstrual cycles. Mission Sanscar will work to shift women and girls to the use of cotton napkins, and will teach them to produce reusable pads that they can also sell to others. Additionally the venture will provide education and support on reproductive health, sexual consent, and abuse, thereby creating a higher standard of living for women in the region.
