A project on mensural hygiene.

Posted March 14, 2019 from Nepal

Hello,

 In the rural parts of my country talking about menstruation is still considered a taboo. Hence, me and my team have come up with a campaign to help eliminate this societal taboo. The campaign is named NIRBHAYA ( Fearless ) which provides education to the young girls on measural hygiene, sex education, good touch, bad touch, proper disposal of pad with the assistance of a gynecologist. We are also planning to provide them pads for 3 months and also help them make disposable pads.

Please open the link and view the project and help us help more than 300 girls in Sindhuli, Nepal.

Hi Ushnata,
Welcome to World Pulse. It is a pity that menstration is still a taboo in many parts of the world. Thank for reaching out to these communities and helping the girls. You are restoring their self esteem and confidence. Looking forward to listening to more of your stories.
Stay blessed
