Sustainable Health Enterprises (SHE)
Environment and Human Health
New York, NY
SHE is a social venture that invests in people and ideas that are typically overlooked (and often taboo) as vehicles of socio-economic change.
SHE launched SHE28 in 2009 in Rwanda to address the lack of affordable menstrual products, causing girls to miss school and women to miss work there and globally. By utilizing a local agro-waste & by cutting out distribution middlemen, SHE provides economic opportunities to micro-entrepreneurs.
