Vijaya Kumar

Vijaya Kumar has been working at Kiruba for 10 years, stitching pads for two of those years. He is one of Kiruba’s three male tailors. He lives in Pondicherry and enjoys educating women around him about the cloth pads, which he describes as more expensive upfront, but a healthier and overall better option for the long-term. Vijaya Kumar believes that it is important for both women and men to care for families, and that if a woman wants to work, she should be allowed to do so. He stands for equality and believes that women are powerful and must use their voice.
