With Amya Trust as our implementation partner, our team of two Baala Bosses conducted workshop and pad distribution across Roing district of Arunachal Pradesh. The project was implemented for 1 month and benefitted 250 menstruators. In 2021, we are hoping to increase our footprint in the northeastern states of India, after the overwhelming response in Arunachal.
Our unique programme in Madhya Pradesh helped us uproot menstrual myths across generations. We conducted workshops and pad distributions across schools, Anganwadi centres, health care centres and public community gatherings. 6500 intergenerational menstruators were impacted by our partnership with Krishi Rasayana.View Gallery

Nitish learned about the difficulties Indian women face during mensuration and took the initiative of distributing more than 5642 sustainable Baala sanitary pads to impart awareness around hygiene and menstrual health. Project Baala is aiming to create difference in the society, therefore makes it imperative for men to convey the message and normalise the stigma around mensuration.
Nykaa PRO partnered with Mumbai based youth-led organisations, Project Baala and Junoon to identify and reach out to these exceptionally bright and young women for the course.
The latest edition of Entrepreneurship World Cup (EWC) 2023 saw participation of 393 Indian start-ups, out of which two start-ups (Project Baala and HealthTrip) reached the semi-finals.

Impure. Unclean. Do not enter temples and kitchens. Do not wash your hair. These are some of the taboos internalised by girls all over India when it comes to periods, hindering their knowledge of their bodies and creating a sense of shame around menstruation.
Project Baala is systematically transforming menstrual hygiene practices for economically marginalized
menstruators. Our unique bundle of interventions lead to quadruple benefits of improved health, education,
empowerment and environmental outcomes.
OUR TARGET FOR 2025
This is what happiness looks like!
“Regular pads caused itching and white discharge problems. I have been using the Baala Pads for over 2 months and both these problems have been solved. It is so comfortable that it doesn’t even feel like I am wearing a pad.”
“Even though my teacher skipped the chapter on menstruation, I am happy that Project Baala taught me about my body in a positive and healthy way!”
“Armed with a dedication to study and now, a solution to my mother’s foreboding, I am confident that periods will not deter my pursuit of education”
“I haven’t started menstruating yet but after the workshops I feel that I am prepared for my periods! I am not scared”
“Initially I used disposable napkins that caused rashes and redness. I also used to end up using two disposable pads because of excessive bleeding. Baala has made my life easier, it is soft and comfortable even during heavy flow.”
“With Project Baala’s reusable sanitary pads, I no longer have to worry about where and when to dispose of my used pads!”
