Nepal’s Revolutionary Initiative: Students Avail Sanitary Pads At NPR 2

Nepal’s Tahanu-based educational institute has given new hope for girls avoiding school due to menstruation with a new system in place.

Adikavi Bhanubhakta Campus in Tahanu’s Vyas Municipality-1 installed a sanitary pad vending machine in its premises. A girl can now have access to a sanitary pad by inserting an NPR 2 coin into the slot of the vending machine.

Speaking about the problem faced by menstruating girls, Adikavi Bhanubhakta Campus student Ashmita Adhikari said female students quit their study due to menstruation, while some others are forced to stay at home for 4-5 days.

“Whether it is a school or college if menstruation occurs, female students have to leave class. Girl students quit classes in the middle due to unavailability of sanitary pads,” she added.

The installation of the vending machine has increased the strength of female students in the campus. The institute has a total strength of 2,600 students, out of which 1,600 are students.

Menstruation has always been a concern for Nepali women, with many students dropping out of schools or having to face the ill effects of Chhaupadi.
