Eco-friendly sanitary pads for girls
Girls are often absent from school during menstruation due to a lack of access to sanitary pads. This leads a girl to drop out of school in the long run because school absenteeism makes them poor performers in exams, which brings shame to them among family and community.
In Nepal 30 percent of girls report missing school during their periods because of a lack of privacy and the unavailability of sanitary disposal facilities as well as water shortages.
