Happy Period for 600 Nepali girls in 7 schools

Summary

Helpcode is committed on bringing health education and sustainable menstrual solutions to 600 girls in rural Nepal. Without basic hygiene education and sanitation, rural girls often miss many days of school ultimately dropping out. Partnering with Helpcode Nepal, we provide safe, nice, easy to use and long-lasting washable menstrual kits along with our important health education. Our Kits are produced locally in our sewing workshop in Chitwan providing employment to vulnerable women.

Challenge

Given 40% of child marriage and 319,000 secondary-school-aged children out-of-school in Nepal, adolescent girls from rural areas face strong challenges to complete high school. Lack of separated toilets at school and harmful practises do not allow to manage properly their menstruation. Girls and women resort to using rags, cotton, old sari, feathers, and even cow dung to manage their menstruation. Without basic hygiene education and sanitation, rural girls often miss many days of school.

Solution

Helpcode provides safe, beautiful, long-lasting washable menstrual Kits to 600 teen girls who join our Girls Club in 7 schools. By teaching to adolescent girl vital health education that has proven international quality and giving the girls free dignity menstrual Kits, we can keep girls in school and not miss out on their high school education. The menstrual Kits are prepared in Chitwan workshop by women who are taught sewing skills and are empowered to become a pillar of their families.

Long-Term Impact

By keeping girls in school and empowering them to believe that they are strong, independent and valued members of their community, they will go on to be future leaders in Nepal and will be breaking the poverty cycle through education. By empowering the Girl Clubs share their knowledge with girls in the countryside, we are personifying the power of education - bright students from poor rural families bringing the power of education back to their rural communities.
