Sanitary pads distribution – Shree Nepal Rastriya Aadharbhoot school
We distributed sanitary materials to girls at Shree Nepal Rastriya Aadharbhoot school Thakurdwara, Bardia. The sanitary pads were distributed to 178 girls studying from class 5 to class 8.
Shanti Pant Foundation has been distributing sanitary materials every quarter to the girls since 2018. The girls at the school belong to the poor and marginalized families who cannot afford sanitary materials during their periods. Due to which they are forced to stay back at home during their periods. After studying the problems on their attendance during periods we got to know that affordability of sanitary pad was a major issue. To fulfil the requirement Shanti Pant Foundation started its quarterly distribution of sanitary materials.
We are very glad to help these girls as their attendance has been growing gradually. Education is a very important factor for every child. With the help of our volunteer’s and teachers, Shanti Pant Foundation has been fulfilling the required commitment to the committed schools.
