I am Ujali Thapa from Khaptad Chhanna, Bajhang. I am 31 years old and I am one of the members of the project’s mothers' group. We participate in monthly meetings where we can support one another and develop new skills.
Women in our community are often busy doing household chores like cooking and taking care of the animals. We never get a chance to participate in any training or meetings, but this project gives us the opportunity to take part in such activities!
I have attended women’s leadership training and women’s community meetings, where different issues like menstruation hygiene, sexual and reproductive health and gender equity were addressed. I feel like I have learnt so much!
I believe that this project has come to empower women and girls. One day, all women will be empowered and independent.
We receive sanitary pads from this project. The Government distributes free sanitary pads to schoolgirls, but they do not distribute them to women in the local areas. This project heard our problem and offers free hygienic pads to us. They also taught us how to wear a pad, so we wear them properly and hygienically.
The women in the community and I are very happy with this project. I have started wearing sanitary pads and feel more confident in doing so since the training sessions.
Thanks to your support women like Ujali Thapa can gain more independence and become part of a thriving women’s community.
