Amics del Nepal has always shown concern about the health of its beneficiaries. Women Literacy Project (WLP) not only focuses on literacy classes but also provides information and materials related to good health and hygiene practices. On 30th September, women of the literacy group received a health workshop on the topic of menstrual hygiene & menopause. The session started with a 15-minute warm-up. There were a total of 16 women who participated in the workshop.
Since the women are in the age group of 35 to 55, menopause was the best topic to discuss. This workshop was very informative as they learned about menstrual hygiene and the signs and symptoms of menopause. The women who have already faced menopause shared their experience with others which made the session more interactive. All the women seemed to be interested and curious about the topic because they never had a discussion about menopause before. At the end of the workshop, they were provided with a set of hygiene packs which consists of a towel, sanitary pads, nail cutter, soap and brush. Women were delighted to share their knowledge, and experiences and learn about the new topic during the health workshop as this was their first health workshop received from Amics del Nepal.
This project is possible thanks to the support of all the members of Amics del Nepal and the collaborating partners:
