Days for Girls Micro-Enterprise, Dhading, Nepal

Please help us deliver menstrual hygiene kits to young girls and women.

Project for a Village, in partnership with Medical Mercy Canada, provided support and funding for the first Days for Girls, International Micro-enterprise center in Nepal. The Micro-enterprise is located in the Women for Human Rights Single Women’s Shelter in Dhading Besi and is staffed entirely by single mothers. The women have been trained by Days for Girls, International to produce the components in the menstrual hygiene kits that are available for purchase by local Nonprofit organizations and village women. The Micro-enterprise will be a self-sustaining endeavor providing a small income for the women producing the kits. Kits are available for distribution to schools. Along with the kit distribution there is an important health and hygiene class taught to the girls. This Micro-enterprise helps both the women who are learning to sew and run a small business as well as the girls who are receiving the kits.

In much of the developing world menstruation is a taboo subject and often the cause of missed days of school for young girls. When money is scarce families simply cannot afford to purchase supplies that are commonplace in the developed world. Young girls simply do not have the resources to care for their bodies properly and often end up with infections as the result of using old, dirty rags, newspapers or even mud to catch their monthly flow. In partnership with Days for Girls, International and Medical Mercy Canada, Project for a Village has helped to open the Micro-enterprise center in Dhading Besi, Nepal. Currently there are 8 single women who have been given the opportunity to learn the skills to make the kits and earn a small income, when they previously had none.  Along with distributing menstrual supplies to girls we teach them about menstrual health with the hope that these girls will be empowered and understand that menstruation is not a taboo, but a very important part of their lives. We also hope that with clean menstrual supplies, they will not be forced to miss school during their period. 100% of the money donated to make these kits will be used for them alone, nothing else. The cost of each kit is $7.00 and includes 2 panty shields, 4 absorbent liners, 1 pair of panties, soap and plastic baggies. Everything is reusable. Please help support our efforts to bring health and hope to the young women in Nepal.
