Improving Menstrual Health and Hygiene of School Girls

ECCA conducted an event aiming at creating awareness among 200 adolescent school girls about the importance of menstrual hygiene, as well as the distribution of reusable sanitary pads among them. The event conducted at Prerana Vidhyashram School situated in Harisiddhi, Lalitpur district of Nepal, included an interaction session to make the school girls aware of the right menstrual hygiene practices. Leaflets in local language (with information about menstrual hygiene management) were also provided along with the sanitary pad sets. Four sanitary bins were also placed inside the girls' toilets, for safe and easy disposal of used sanitary pads.

The students thanked for the support and shared “No more fear to change sanitary napkins, or to participate in any extracurricular activities at school, or discomfort to attend classes”.

We also thank you for the continuous support.

COVID-19 Prevention Materials for Schools

The present COVID-19 pandemic has affected the regular studies of many children. Though online classes are held in the city, such facility is not available in rural areas (due to unavailability of internet access and poor economic condition of the family). In these rural areas, physical presence class is the only option.

ECCA supported Deurali Secondary School, Thani Basic School, Sitadevi Secondary School and Ram Secondary School located in the rural villages of Dhankuta district (in eastern Nepal) with COVID-19 prevention materials. All together 500 liters of chlorine solution (a disinfectant, branded as WATASOL), 600 face masks (washable), 4 boxes gloves, 300 hand washing soaps and 4 spray bottles were equally distributed to these four schools. This has helped the schools to open, making it possible for students to come and study.

Mr. Purna, teacher of Deurali Secondary School shared, “The support received from ECCA will contribute to avoid students' and school staffs’ exposure to COVID-19 infection. Due to shortage of fund and such materials, we were facing difficulty. We can now continue disinfection as well as practice personal hygiene and operate regular class. Thank you so much, ECCA, for considering our request.”

We are also thankful for your support.
