Pink Brigade works for the benefit of underprivileged women in India, especially those living in remote areas, or in shelters/ rescue homes/ hospices, etc. One of the specific needs of such women which the Pink Brigade addresses is the subject of menstrual hygiene, by providing the women with sanitary napkins, and educating them on their use.

More than one thousand women have been provided with their six-monthly supply till date and many more are being identified for forthcoming programmes.

Pink Brigade has steped in to help flood-affected women in several parts of the country, not only with supplies of sanitary napkins, but also with supplies of new undergarments, without which the women would be unable to use the napkins.

Our mission

The Pink Brigade works for the benefit of underprivileged women in India by:

  • Providing eco-friendly sanitary napkins
  • Distributing underwear and other essential garments
  • Educating girls and women on menstrual hygiene practices
  • Supplying relief material to women in disaster-affected areas
  • Helping local handloom weavers to be self-reliant and successful.

Our vision

Earth Brigade Foundation’s women-oriented campaign, The Pink Brigade, aims to empower underprivileged girls and women with access to menstrual hygiene products and other materials they need to live their lives with dignity and autonomy.

The Pink Brigade has provided aid in the form of menstrual hygiene supplies and clothing to women across India, including in the following regions:

  • Outskirts of Corbett Tiger Reserve, Uttarakhand.
  • Outskirts of Kanha Tiger Reserve, Madhya Pradesh.
  • Tribal Hamlets in Aarey Colony, Mumbai.
  • Sunderbans, West Bengal, flood-affected women.
  • Jorhat, Assam, flood-affected women.
  • Ernakulam, Kerala, flood-affected women.
  • Kolhapur, Maharashtra, flood-affected women.
  • Bhubaneshwar, Orissa, flood-affected women.
  • New Delhi, for donation to Covid-affected migrants.


Handloom WEAVERS

Pink Brigade also ideates symbiotic associations to help fund its projects – one of its very successful programmes is titled ‘Weaving Dreams’.

Under this, Pink Brigade provides grants to genuine traditional handloom weavers across the country to encourage them, as handloom weaving is very labour intensive, and is a dying art. Pink Brigade sources valuable handloom sarees from these weavers, and helps sell them with the help of dedicated volunteers to raise funds for the sanitary-napkin distribution programmes.
Weavers we have supported:

  • Khatri Akram Jusab
  • K. Sekhar
  • Ananafit
