SAUKHYAM MEANS HAPPINESS AND WELL BEING
We chose the name Saukhyam for our reusable pads because we believe menstruation has been undervalued and ignored for too long. Women give birth to every human being and menstruation makes that cycle possible. When you switch to our beautiful reusable pads, you are celebrating the life cycle and honoring your place in it.
Initially, as part of the Amrita SeRVe (Self Reliant Village) project of the Mata Amritanandamayi Math, we set out to design a reusable pad that women in rural India would actually use.
We ended up creating a pad that’s better for women everywhere. Its finding global acceptance and educated, well-informed women are making the switch.
Our reusable pad initiative is inspired by the world-renowned humanitarian Sri Mata Amritanandamayi, Amma.
This initiative is a project of Embracing the World, a multi-national collective of not-for-profit organizations dedicated to working for the poor and needy. We are but one strand in a broader fabric of humanitarian initiatives.
In December 2016, Saukhyam Reusable Pads won the Most Innovative Product Award at the National Institute of Rural Development in Hyderabad, India.
