Maiti Nepal joined hands with Standard Chartered Nepal to produce affordable sanitary napkins. In the event, Ms. Judy Hsu – Regional CEO ASEAN and South Asia of SCB handed over 2 sanitary napkins producing machines whose core objective is to empower the high-risk girls/women through production of low-cost Sanitary Napkins that ensures the sustainable business and promotes safe menstrual hygiene of the women. This project will ensure production and supply of the best quality sanitary napkins in lower cost as well as provide trainings and job opportunities to survivors of trafficking. It will also ensure to provide disposable income to survivors of trafficking and encouraging entrepreneurship among them and improving the menstrual hygiene of women/adolescent girls, hence improving the reproductive health.
Maiti Nepal is gratified to be continuously partnering with SCB for past two decades and now coordinating with this revolutionary project which we believe will be a milestone in this field.
