Challenge

Studies have shown that adolescent girls often lack appropriate information about their reproductive health and proper menstrual management, which directly impacts their schooling, affecting their academic progress. Only 42% of the girls in Nepal have access to a toilet with adequate privacy at school resulting in 53% of the students having poor menstrual health. Adolescent girls in rural settings and in particular girls in schools suffer most from stigma and lack of services

Solution

No Shame to Bleed aims to promote safer and healthier menstruation for girls and women, by enhancing their knowledge, attitude and practice on menstrual health, and promoting the role of gatekeepers such as boys students, school authority and parents. The project also advocates the importance of menstrual health-friendly school facilities through school workshops. The workshops on MHM are conducted with the help of volunteers and aims to provide technical support to schools to enhance schools.

Long-Term Impact

Around 1000 girls every year will receive life skills-based information to make their menstruation safer and healthier, and can serve as catalyst for change in their home and community. Involving boys in conversations around menstruation is also one of the major objectives of the project. By reaching 1000 boys everywhere we hope to create a supportive environment for girls to exercise their menstrual health rights in schools and communities.
