The ladies from the village of Bhadratar and the surrounding area recently received 200 reusable sanitary pad kits provided by The Asha Foundation. The kits which contain 4 liners and shields are washable and were made in Kathmandu. In rural Nepal menstrating girls and women do not have access to sanitary pads due to the cost, by providing these kits, Asha is addressing a problem effecting these women and girls every month. It is hoped womens groups in Bhadratar village and surrounding villages will be able to make their own kits through funding from Asha so they can purchase manual sewing machines and materials.
This is just another way The Asha Foundation is addressing poverty and giving women dignity.
Note - In February 2016 Asha Foundation committee members delivered 160 sanitary kits to Bhadratar village.
