ICA Nepal supports Surakshya school on menstrual hygiene management

ICA Nepal is all ready to welcome our ICA colleagues and other guests to the Asia Pacific Regional Meeting (APRM), starting today. Please make sure to confirm your registration and send your arrival details to us!

On August 28, we conducted a follow up at one of the schools, where we had conducted the Menstruation Hygiene Management Program. We were glad to see that the members of the Surakshya Club had worked with the school to make the school’s toilets more girl friendly (see image above). Now they have sanitary napkins for emergency use in the school, a dustbin, and water for the toilets.  The Surakshya girls have created a Wall Magazine at their school which they have entitled: Lets Talk Periods.

Dr. Tatwa Pd. Timsina, after his recent visit to Italy, facilitated a talk program on, “Prospects of Agro Tourism in Nepal: Learning from Italy”. The program was conducted by ICA Nepal in collaboration with the Rotary Club of Rudramati Kathmandu. Since then he has visited Lamjung, to see if there is the potential in that area for agro tourism, especially grape farming.
