With poverty-stricken slums raging a battle against miserable sanitation conditions, Project Tabeer focuses on the 6th objective of Sustainable Development Goals set by the UN, a holistic sanitation solution. It involves the production of chemical-free handwashes by marginalized women.
A simple yet innovative handwash manufacturing process has been devised for the production of the product. The product’s chemical-free manufacturing process helped us encourage the producer of the handwashes, the marginalized women, rape victims and acid attack survivors to indulge and partake in the production process. Harmful additives like Lye and sodium cyanide which can cause permanent loss of sight are refrained, thus making the product eco-friendly
Tabeer is a battle against the substandard sanitary conditions prevalent in India, starting from the least advantaged sections of the society, slum areas. Tabeer also stands for the independence of marginalized women from the economic pressure & social taboos.
An innovative handwash manufacturing process was devised by the team to lower down the cost of manufacturing a single bottle of handwash. It costs us Rs. 15.53 rupees. Subsequently, it is sold through various channels to urban and rural market through a cross-compensation model.
