The Uger Project was started in 2011 – “Uger” means “new beginnings” in the Mewari language of South Rajasthan. This is a movement focusing on breaking silence around the subject of menstruation, promoting menstrual health and combating the growing use of disposable products and bringing back respect to reuse. This has been done by the design and development of Uger reusable cloth products – such as nappies and diapers.
- The project helps a women’s group to earn a supplementary income for their families by stitching.
- It includes men in menstruation who are otherwise marginalized
- It helps women perceive and talk about and manage menstruation positively, connecting with their bodies to make healthy choices and care for the environment.
