Gorkha – Menstrual Education Trip to Local School
Updated: Dec 19, 2021
Recently we were at the Shree Janakalyan secondary school in Tallo Gore, Gorkha. We were trying to exchange the knowledge with our beautiful students about menstrual hygiene. As we know, most of the women and girls have been facing many problems during their periods. We would like to see all the women and girls healthy. That’s why we came to this village’s school and provided special education about menstruation hygiene. Already many girls have their period but some younger girls are still waiting for it. We gave lessons to all the girls about how they can be healthy and strong. Many girls are still facing some problems during their period, like staying separate from their parents, not being allowed to touch anything in the kitchen, and having to cook outside. However we hope our education will help to make a difference in the near future. We were curious, so asked to the girls “What kind of pads do you use during your period?” Most of the girls said they have been using normal sanitary pads which they can buy in the market, or if not, they use cotton like their mothers and grandmothers used to. Then afterwards they would burn or bury them in the ground. We compared the benefits of reusable sanitary pads and normal sanitary pads, and all the students were so excited to have the opportunity to use reusable sanitary pads. Some younger girls were looking at the pads and were excited to have these available to use when they will have their period after few months.
We were so happy to provide reusable sanitary pads for all the beautiful girls and give a lesson about menstruation hygiene.
We would like give huge thanks to Tabita, Bijay and their beautiful girls team ( Australia ). Without your support, 87 girls will not receive reusable kits and menstrual hygiene lessons. Our project was successful because of you all, so thank you so much again for supporting us. We hope we will continue helping ours sisters all over Nepal. Thank you for being part of our project.
Together we are stronger, so if you want to be part of the project please let us know and we can work together for the period movement all over Nepal. . . Every Step Counts .
