Menstruation is a taboo subject in Nepal and in much of the world. But times are changing and there is a global shift happening.

We are helping to bring this movement to Nepal, raising awareness and sharing fundamental knowledge to alter the perception and change the experience for women and girls, especially in rural areas.

EACH OF US CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
TOGETHER WE CAN CREATE CHANGE

We can change the perception of menstruation in Nepal

We can provide understanding and dignity through education

We can empower women in Nepal to have choice and a voice.

THE BACKGROUND STORY

What is the practice of menstruation
in Nepal? What are the historical and
religious traditions?

AN INDIVIDUAL INSIGHT

Anisha is 14 and from a village in Dhading
district. She shares her personal
experience of menstruation.

Watch a short animation that tells the story of Chhaupadi,
an extreme practice that is now illegal in Nepal,
and how this practice has effected individuals lives.

IT’S NOT NECESSARILY CHANGING THE PRACTICES AROUND OUR MENSTRUATION

but if we can all change the way that we think about it, the way that we perceive it, and see that any way we choose to honour our menstruation is because our bodies are powerful, then we’ll feel more confident and able to talk about something that has been taboo for so long!

We host, fundraise for and collaborate with other organisations to hold menstruation workshops for women.

Our workshops are designed to focus on the positive, and are a fun and relaxed environment. Although there is often a lot of shyness around this sensitive subject, generally the women and girls relax quickly, giggling with each other and asking questions.

AN INSIGHT INTO
OUR WORKSHOP STRUCTURE

Creativity gives opportunity for expression, and for learning and understanding in a relaxed and fun environment.
We use creativity to explore women’s fears and break down taboos, allowing them to formulate their own ideas about the subject.
We then use that creativity to illustrate our motto,
that Together we are Stronger.

OUR CREATIVITY CONTINUES TO GROW AFTER WORKSHOPS
