Summary

Off Period Poverty program aims to reduce period poverty through a community adoption model, where the desired menstrual products by the community are made accessible regularly at an affordable price through a local centre within the community.

AIC-MIT ADT Incubator Forum (supported by Atal Innovation Mission, NITI Aayog, Government of India and hosted by MIT Art, Design and Technology University), Oneform Foundation and Care Form Labs Pvt Ltd raises and manages the funds regarding CSR projects.

Oneform Foundation adopts the communities and manages the Off Period Poverty program.
