Dear Friends and Supporters

I am happy to report that, despite all the problems and delays created by the Covid pandemic, we have completed the first phase of this project. In a society where monthly menstruation is stigmatised girls do not get a full education and struggle to compete with their male counterparts. Many girls come from very poor homes and cannot afford the cost of sanitary products to make life easier.

The specific objectives of this project are:

  • Raise awareness among girls, boys, teachers, parents and school management committees of the difficulties faced by girls during their monthly menstrual period at school.
  • Build sanitary pad disposal ovens at schools.
  • Train and educate girls and women to prepare cheaper pads at a local level. 

The main activities successfully achieved includes the construction of incinerators at 40 secondary schools. In addition 25 schools had existing toilet and washing facilities repaired or upgraded and several schools had toilet facilities upgraded to make them more girl friendly. Children with physical and learning difficulties were also included in the upgrades. Altogether nearly 11000 children benefit from the improvements.

Vocational training was provided for 21 adult participants in tailoring and sanitary pad production.

Students and staff now have access to long-term sanitation/hygiene facilities in their schools and have obtained knowledge about girl hygiene and how to deal with the issues for a healthy trouble free life.

The next two phases of the project have now started and we would ask for your help to support this valuable and important project. On completion of the project we will have improved facilities in 120 secondary schools  and improved the lives of girls throughout the district of Baglung.

Many thanks for all the support you have given to reach this milestone and we would ask you to stay with us until final completion. Have you a friend that might also be interested?

With our best wihes.

Namaste
