My place to contemplate 🇬🇧 A short weekend to myself before getting back to work.
A new milestone achieved!
Nelson Mandela said that poor Menstrual hygiene was one of the three reasons why girls were facing inequality as compared to boys.
It was an honour to inaugurate the first sanitary pad manufacturing unit set up by us in South Africa along with his excellency, President Cyril Ramaphosa. It was a pleasure to escort you to the unit and explain the project and how the unit works.
Work has already started and the first batch of 100% compostable, low cost sanitary pads have been produced! Two shifts of six to eight women and one supervisor each have been trained to operate the unit providing employment to the women of Mvezo. Around 2000 pads will be produced everyday and no girl shall feel uncomfortable while attending school.
We already have more than 40 of these units running across 12 states of India. We are soon to open a unit in Johannesburg and also move to Kenya and Rwanda.
Witnessing my project cross continents in such a short period of time is like a dream come true!
Milestones still to be achieved...
Here’s to the invisible bond that comes with the crown ❤️
Dearest Rolene ❤️❤️
Sharing the same passion, I am so happy to have finally met you. We have made some great memories even though the trip was short.
Thank you for joining me in my project!
Give my love to baby Strauss ❤️❤️
I will miss the late night gossips and hairstyling 😛 #missworld #sisters
“67 minutes to honour 67 years of service”
Nelson Mandela believed that everyone had a right to health and education.
Keeping in mind his beliefs, we started his birthday celebrations by handing out 200 blankets and winter hats to the elderly at the newly opened health centre in his home village “Mvezo”.
There were also 100 bicycles donated to school children.

Happy 100th to a winner who’s dreams still live within us. Happy birthday Madiba!
“There can be no greater gift than that of giving one’s time and energy to help others without expecting anything in return” ~ Nelson Mandela
Happy Birthday Madiba
You still live within us!
The sun rises in Mvezo!
Today, on the birth centenary of former president of South Africa, Nelson Mandela, the sunrise symbolises his ability to see an opportunity in everything. He was a man with a vision and mission to empower others.
He belongs not only to his homeland Mvezo, but to the entire world!
When they tell you to be up and ready at 4 am after a late night for an early flight ✈️
Landed in Umatata!
Tomorrow is going to be a turning point in my project and being able to not only be a part of the 100th birthday of Nelson Mandela, but also contribute to his legacy by providing girls with an opportunity towards equality is a dream come true!
From yesterday at the press conference in Johannesburg.
The very first 💯% compostable and low cost sanitary pads manufacturing machines to be installed in “Mvezo” the birthplace of Nelson Mandela’s on his 100th birthday.
A day filled with interviews!
While everyone wonders what we’re doing early morning all dolled up, I pretend to be batman 😎 👗 @pinnacle_shrutisancheti
