Deeksha Patel creates a nonprofit that focuses on menstrual health

February 2024
Deeksha Patel creates a nonprofit that focuses on menstrual health Deeksha Patel, a Chamblee High School senior, is working to humanize and break taboos around menstruation. She founded The Elea Project to partner with other groups around this issue and ensure women’s menstrual health. To ease the injustices of “period poverty” in her community and beyond, the 17-year-old assembles personalized menstrual hygiene kits—with medications, pads, tampons, wipes, and sanitizers— and delivers them to homeless shelters, community centers, and schools. Picked by The Atlanta Journal- Constitution for its yearly Everyday Heroes project, she is among the “52 inspiring Georgians who have done their small part to make a big difference.”
