Manjit is CEO and founder of the phenomenal social-enterprise, Binti International. Binti seek to empower women by eliminating the social and cultural stigma surrounding menstruation. Manjit managed to amass nearly 20 years of business expertise and has been involved in 7 startups prior to Binti. Her flair for finding opportunities has taken her around the world and she has international experience in the business arena. It was actually her role as a mentor for a business woman in Kenya with the Cherie Blair Foundation that led her to start Binti. Her mission is to create a huge, social impact whilst generating a sustainable organisation, and providing basic menstrual hygiene solutions and reproductive education for girls and women across the world has become her obsession. She has been nominated for several awards for her work at Binti including AWAA Social and Humanitarian highly commended. Last August she was named Woman of the Year through receiving the Asian Achievers Award. She has also been profiled in many notable publications including Marie Claire, The Independent, The Metro and The Times of India. Manjit says her mother raised her to believe she could do everything a man could do and that belief became her motivation. She says maybe that is why when she found out some women do not have access to sanitary pads it fuelled her fire to create change - because she knows that without a pad she would not have been able to have done half the things that she has done.
