For ladies across the country, public toilets are more or less inaccessible. The majority of the toilets across the city or at railways or highways are either ill-maintained or are highly in unhygienic conditions.

The idea behind starting Fe-Uri
Divesh told us that while he was in Mumbai during his job days, whenever he used to go out with friends he observed that most of her female friends had to face issue about finding a clean toilet to pee, they had to look for a good restaurant or mall nearby as public toilets were in such a pathetic condition. The situation motivated Divesh to come out with a solution to the problem and gave birth to the idea of starting Fe-Uri.
With the idea of SMART SANITIZATION, Fe-Uri intends to offer a complete solution to female hygiene with care.
Fe-Uri conducted a countrywide survey asking women with their experience of encountering unhygienic toilets and reports came out to be shocking that at least 65% of women always face problem while finding a clean toilet outdoors. Divesh came up with the solution of making paper funnels as they are easy to carry and use and can be disposed of then and there.
