The primary presenters of Project Shrimati were 4 students from Jamia Millia Islamia namely, Gaurav Chakraborty (Dept. of Economics), Manal Siddiqui (Dept. of Chemistry), Maham Kamal (Dept. of English) and Izeen Fatima (Dept. of Psychology).

‘Project Shrimati’ is an initiative by Enactus Jamia Millia Islamia, which aims to tackle the prevalent problems in our country such as unemployment, plastic pollution, menstrual hygiene and sanitary waste disposal while also uplifting and empowering the women of our society by providing them with financial stability through employment. The project manufactures reusable, eco-friendly sanitary pads to combat the numerous environmental problems associated with the widespread disposal of plastic waste along with raising awareness of menstrual health and hygiene through awareness campaigns and distribution drives.

In its latest achievement, Project Shrimati has expanded its influence in Southern India, as a new production unit of the project is under development in Goa in collaboration with Axzora Group and Ethernet Xpress. As of now, Enactus JMI, through Project Shrimati, has been successful in motivating 2750 women and girls to switch to our reusable Shrimati Pads, thus reducing 14.575 metric tons of CO2 emissions.

The Race for Climate Action is a competition that aims to identify and mobilize Enactus teams that work to address the climate crisis. Alongside Project Shrimati, the chosen top 5 finalists from a field of 90 entries and 16 countries, included Project Nawah (Dyal Singh College, India), Zaraat (Delhi College of Arts and Commerce, India), Swabun (Ramjas College), and BettaCoal (University of Agriculture, Makurdi, Nigeria).
