Once the object of ridicule, Arunachalam Muruganantham, or the Menstrual Man, as he was called in the award-wining documentary by Amit Virmani, is today hailed as a hero by the women of India. He is the creator of a low-cost sanitary pad making machine – which makes pads for 1/3 of the cost of commercial pads – and has helped generate widespread awareness on traditionally unhygienic menstruation practices in India. Despite offers by big corporations to commercialise his invention, he has refused and instead continues to offer them to self-help groups run by women. In 2014, this remarkable man, once ostracised for his ‘experiments’, was named one of TIME’s 100 most influential people. Arunachalam Muruganantham was the winner of Iclif Leadership Energy Awards (ILEA) 2016 in Social Enterprise Owner/Founder Category.
Iclif Leadership Energy Awards 2016 Winner | Rizan Hassan
If there’s one thing that Mohammad Rizan Hassan believes in, it’s second chances. After all, he was given the opportunity to turn over a new leaf, away from his shady past, and this he did with gusto. While he may have left that life far behind, it is the lessons he learned in those dark years that allowed him to recognise the disparity faced by marginalised youths in Malaysia. The same disparities he has sought to address through his initiatives; 1 Belia, 1 Kemahiran (1B1K) and TEKAT Automotive Centre. His inspirational leadership and advocacy for at-risk and troubled youth has helped over 5,000 vulnerable Malaysian youths graduate with vocational skills and become useful members of the country’s workforce and society in general. Rizan Hassan was the winner of Iclif Leadership Energy Awards (ILEA) 2016 in Corporate Employee Category.
