Miss World 2017 Manushi Chillar is a stunner. Not only has she managed to win hearts, but her charity work is quite notable. a perfect example of beauty with brains, Manushi conceived and founded a non-profit organisation, Project Shakti, aimed at improving the menstrual hygiene of women in India immediately after winning Miss World in 2017. For the same, she constantly works with women in over 20 villages of India to spread the message of sanitation. Today, Project Shakti provides free sanitary pads among women and has also empowered many by helping them earn a living and become self-reliant.  

Now, on World AIDS Day today, the beauty pageant winner is taking her project one step further and expanding it. Manushi is slated to start an AIDS awareness programme among rural women across 20 villages in India. The initiative rolls out today with the objective to spread AIDS awareness through community outreach.  

Manushi, who is debuting in Prithviraj, says, “AIDS awareness among women will be one of the key initiatives of Project Shakti because I do feel women of our country are at risk due to lack of awareness programmes. We work with hundreds of women across India and we are looking to educate them about AIDS awareness so that they can spread this important message in their respective communities. It is absolutely essential for our country to fight AIDS and I’m looking forward to doing my bit for the cause.” 

Elaborating on Project Shakti, Manushi says, “I started it 3 years ago aimed at bringing about social change. We are operating in India across 12 states (and expanding in the African continent) where we have these machines which produce sanitary pads from natural fiber." Kudos to Manushi for making this cause a great success.
