Our Mission

We are a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to improve the living standards of rural populations in the far-western region of Nepal.

Our work is conducted through the understanding of culture, norms, behavior; and deliberate discussions and involvement of the local population.

Currently, we are working in 2 villages in Bajhang in the area of women’s menstrual health. Our goal is to make menstrual pads available to all women within 6 months (by March 2021) in both villages while holding discussions about the uses, benefits and behavior changes around it.
