Keep Girls in School

 

Every month, many girls in Nepal only have cloth for period protection and face the risk of missing school.

Most girls and women cannot afford sanitary pads, so they use unhygienic alternatives. This puts them at greater risk of infection during their periods.

School toilets are often ill-equipped to offer menstruating girls the privacy they need to adequately clean themselves, thus many skip classes during their periods. Over time, the girls fall behind in their studies and may end up dropping out of school completely.
