Update on Menstrual Hygiene for Nepali Girls

  • We shouldn’t feel ashamed of menstruation because it’s a natural process.

  • Sanitary pads are more comfortable than old clothes

  • Sanitary pads should be made available in the schools.

  • Superstitions regarding menstruation should be abolished.

  • Each girl should have access to proper menstruation education. It should be provided at an appropriate age.

  • Proper disposal of pad should be done.

  • Boys should understand that menstruation is a natural process and stop teasing and making fun of girl. .

  • Sanitary pads must be changed in an every four to six hours for good health and hygiene.

  • By performing different types of programs like street dramas, publishing articles etc. we can provide “Menstrual Hygiene Management” knowledge to people.

Above mentioned are some points that were presented by school girls of Glen Buds Secondary School located at Kathmandu Nepal. During the awareness raising workshop we worked with school girls on some of the case studies on menstruation problem. Altogether 40 girls of class VII, VIII, IX and X participated in the workshop conducted by ICA Nepal on 29 June, 2017. The workshop was facilitated by Ms. Pritha, Ms. Yasodha and Ms. Deepa .

The workshop focused on the need of proper menstrual hygiene management, effective disposal of used sanitary napkins, potential health risks associated with it, role of schools and girls themselves in their rights to menstruation hygiene at schools, at homes and at society as whole. At the end of workshop a club named “Surakshya Club” is formed with 6 members. The club will work with school in making arrangement of sanitary napkin at schools, monitors dustbin, water, and cleanliness of toilets and make sure that toilets are girls friendly. Surakshya Sanitary Napkin, locally produced sanitary napkin provided 5 packets of sanitary napkins to the club to start with.

ICA Nepal is conducting various awareness programs to school girls and local women on need of menstruation hygiene management. We would like to thank you all the donors for supporting us to continue our efforts to address this issue. We seek your continuous support to bring lasting change in the society.
