Naziba Wafa, Resurgence co-founder, is revolutionizing menstrual hygiene in low-income communities through low-cost, biodegradable sanitary pads made out of water hyacinth. Realizing the lack of sanitation prevailing in the slum areas of Dhaka, Bangladesh, Naziba took action to end community suffering, particularly among women with poor menstrual health.


Naziba along her team are taking further action to shatter the social stigma revolving around the topic. By empowering vulnerable populations, specifically underprivileged women, through education and employment opportunities, Naziba and her team are poised for success.
