WHY IT MATTERS
An item as simple as a sanitary napkin can have a massive impact on a girl's education. In Nepal, many girls simply don't have the means to purchase feminine hygiene products, resulting in poor menstrual health and heightened risk of infections, in addition to facing major social stigma. This often leads to girls missing school or dropping out entirely after getting their periods. By providing a disadvantaged girl with feminine hygiene products, you can help increase her school attendance, improve her self-confidence and maintain her dignity.
