In rural parts of Nepal, a tradition called chhaupadi is practiced. It teaches that menstruation is unhealthy and unlucky. Because of this, menstruating women and girls are banished during their monthly cycle—often in unheated sheds, where they’re exposed to the elements and other dangers.
In Kailali, Days for Girls and doTERRA Healing Hands® are working to educate communities on healthy female functions, with the goal of ending practices like chhaupadi. Over 400 individuals attend their training and received Days for Girls Kits, with reusable supplies to help these girls and women better manage their periods.
With your support, we can continue spreading education and brining an end to dangerous traditions such as chhaupadi.
