Ira Guha
Ira is spending the summer working on the development of Asan, a social enterprise that distributes reusable menstrual cups made of silicone to low‑income women in India. Asan (which in Hindi means easy or worry‑free) has a mission to make periods a worry‑free experience for Indian women, the majority of whom cannot afford period products such as tampons and pads. Working with designers at Harvard's Graduate School of Design, Asan has designed a high‑quality menstrual cup that can be manufactured at low‑cost. Ira will spend the summer in Bangalore working with manufacturers and distribution partners to bring the product to women in need.
