About
Koshika Krishna is founding SeHER in Mumbai, India to address the stigmatization and health risks associated with poor information about women's menstrual hygiene. Her program combines education with an enterprise by women that manufactures and sells single use pads at 40% of the price of competitors to increase access and information. Recently, Koshika reported that she has interacted directly with 826 female beneficiaries over 6 months through seHER directly. She was also recently the youngest selected recipient of the National Woman Achiever’s Award by the fundyourownworth campaign of the ICICI Bank, an initiative designed to recognize women across the country who had funded their own worth despite all odds. She and the 24 other recipients were selected from a pool of 19,000 applicants.
