Sanchi Gajghate

Sanchi Gajghate is a Biochemist, Co-Founder of Aahana Innovations that works on breaking taboos against menstruation, and works as a facilitator on gender and sexuality issues for multiple organisations across 5 states in India. Starting from the age of 16 years, Sanchi has already worked with more than 10,000 people on Menstrual Hygiene Management.

 

Sanchi believes that Menstruation is as normal as breathing or blinking. But while working with communities she faces the challenge of no one wanting to talk about this taboo issue. She is keen to learn how to build dialogues about unspoken issues like menstruation, and the transgender community through the Bolti Bandh Fellowship.
