Micro Grants of Progressive Women’s Group:
Women of the Changu area are being united through SA training to transform their own area. They are involved in various activities and with the micro grant support of the Jean Houston Foundation, they are motivating local girls particularly of menstruating age to use hygienic practices such as using sanitary pads. Since the sanitary pads are expensive and the girls cannot afford them, the women are producing low cost sanitary pads and providing to the girls for a nominal cost. Mrs. Dewaka Shrestha, who has been trained in SA is coordinating this task.
