Sanitary pad distribution at Kavre

We had our first sanitary pads distribution at Kavre from this month. Shree Ganesh Lower Secondary School has around 10 girls who get sanitary pads every quarter.

Students getting sanitary pads for three months.

Sanitary pads are necessities for girls to attend schools regularly.   If a girl doesn’t have access to sanitary pads or a safe and clean place at school to change them, then she is bound to stay back home.  She starts missing a few days every month, she falls behind, and she may eventually drop out which leads to early marriage and many other factors of the society.

 

Girls at Shree Ganesh Lower Secondary belongs from a marginalized family where their family cannot afford sanitary pads.  Therefore Shanti Pant Foundation initiated on helping the girls with sanitary pads.
