Today, the world has advanced so much in technology. The health sector has also revolutionized in recent decades. Almost all kinds of health issues can be dealt with and researched further. Women play a vital role in a family, thus in an entire nation also. The well-being of women's health is very important. Although a lot of discussions has been done regarding women's health, our society is still reluctant to openly talk on some important health topics, one very good example is the menstrual health of women. Menstruation is a natural fact of life and a monthly occurrence for the 1.8 billion girls, women, transgender men, and non-binary persons of reproductive age. Yet millions of menstruators across the world are denied the right to manage their monthly menstrual cycle in a dignified and healthy way.

Recently, we came up with an idea to contribute to the betterment of women's health and Nepalese society by improving the menstrual health of girls and awareness on Dignified Menstruation. For this, an effective way would be educating the young generation about the way they handle their menstrual health and understand their dignity during menstruation. Thus, we would like to encourage young adolescents girls to talk openly about menstruation, its hygiene, and dignity during the period. So that young girls can influence their family and society for a better change. Nepal is a developing country, lots of taboos surrounding menstruation are found here. Young girl’s rights are violated from their very first menstruation experience which we suppose is a root cause for gender discrimination.

Our purpose is to help young adolescents girls, which in turn helps women and consequently the entire female population, family, and society. Ashwin Karki, a dignified menstruation activist has been facilitating and giving training to girls of school and women in rural areas who have been facing huge difficulties and are not aware about the menstrual hygiene management and dignity during menstruation. It has been found that girls are practicing a very unhealthy hygiene during menstruation and their rights are violated from very first menstruation experience. Getting menstruation is one of the biggest reasons for girls to miss school in rural communities, making them more likely to fall behind, drop out, and get stuck in the cycle of poverty. Not only this, but it has also been found that young adolescents constitutional rights are violated at the first menstruations time which is the main root cause for gender discrimination.

For solution of this, we had started our project 4 years back. Till now, Ashwin Karki has facilitated more than 3000 young girls. MHM Program and Dignified Menstruation, “Menstrual Talk Dignity First” Program will help girls build the skills to overcome obstacles to their health, freedom, and development, such as gender-based violence, child marriage and school dropout. Investments in adolescent girl’s well-being yield triple dividends: for those girls, for the women they will become, and for the next generation.

Hence, to address about the menstruated health management and to share some ideas we have planned to visit the remote areas of Nepal which would reflect the commitment in realizing the right of all the women’s out there achieving the vision where no women's are left behind.
