Born in Gujrat, India she migrated to Kenya at the age of 11 and this has been her home since. Due to unavoidable circumstances, she dropped out of secondary school. However, she pursued her dream to go back to study; obtained her Diploma, did an online certification on Psychology, qualified in English through the British Council and has been certified by Cambridge.
She is involved in numerous charities, but mainly promoting Menstrual Health Management and currently involved in the distribution of re-useable sanitary pads. There are many challenges facing women from impoverished and under developed areas of the country that she assessing. Re-useable pads have always been the top of her agenda due to the problems faced by the girl child. Many have no access to sanitary pads and on several occasions are reliant on donors. Aruna believes that re-usable pads will help solve this problem.
She is also passionately involved in the Smallest Library in Africa. Her experience has helped establish, build and upgrade over 18 libraries (and counting) in rural and informal housing (slums) in Kenya. Her greatest motivation and joy is the impact on the women and children she works and interacts with and their new perspective approach to life as a result her interaction with them.
