Pad Squad

A People's Volunteer Movement to provide menstrual hygiene to women and girls in the simplest way. Donate a Pad or Join the Squad.



Pad Squad is a people’s movement across India, that enables an individual to take personal social responsibility and action to get & distribute sanitary pads to economically disadvantaged women within their locality, town or city. It is committed to preserving the dignity and health of menstruating women & girls.

Covid-19 made basic essentials like Food scarce for the most fragile and vulnerable people / communities of society, and Sanitary Pads a huge luxury for these people. Pad Squad started on June 1st 2020, with a calling, that this need of menstrual hygiene must be addressed. Our Philosophy is that Women must be provided for and kept strong, as they keep families strong.

Pad Squad directly reaches the people in the Bastis, volunteering collaborating networks across India that work directly with the communities.

Currently, Pad Squad is in 35 cities, with over 70 Pad Squadders, who are spreading awareness and looking after the menstrual needs of approx. 50 communities and growing everyday.

Pad Squad has been making constructive and successful efforts in distributing Biodegradable Pads and will continue to champion Going Green. Pad Squad was Co-Founded by Chhitra Subramaniam (Film Producer) Taranjit Kaur (Actor,Poet)) Devashish Makhija (Film Director), Surya Balakrishnan (Advertising Film Director), Monica Raheja (Producer), Niiya Nia (Actor & activist), Gillian Pinto (Actor), Mayuri Joshi Dhavale (Entrepreneur)
