Girl Friendly School San­i­ta­tion Improve­ment Project

The ‘Girl Friendly School San­i­ta­tion Improve­ment Project in Far West­ern Nepal’ will be imple­mented in the schools of two munic­i­pal­i­ties of Far West­ern Nepal i.e. Amar­gadhi munic­i­pal­ity of Dadeld­hura dis­trict and Dipayal Sil­gadhi munic­i­pal­ity of Doti dis­trict. The main rea­son behind choos­ing these dis­tricts is because of the extremely poor san­i­ta­tion con­di­tion and to address the deeply rooted tra­di­tional prac­tice called ‘Chhau­padi’ (iso­lat­ing girls and women from the out­side world dur­ing their men­stru­a­tion) which pre­vails here. Fre­quent absen­teeism of girl stu­dents dur­ing their men­stru­a­tion has posed threat in achiev­ing the Mil­len­nium Devel­op­ment Goal 2 i.e. attain­ment of uni­ver­sal pri­mary edu­ca­tion in Nepal.
