Driving Social Change- End Menstrual Taboo, End Monthly Exile
Menstrual exile, is a tradition of “untouchability” in Mid Western and far-western Nepal (i.e Karnali and Sudur Pacchim Province). Forbidden from touching other people and objects, women and girls are required to live away from the community, typically in a livestock shed, dens during menstruation. Every year many women die due to suffocation, rape crime, animal and snake attack, fire, etc. From Now, We are launching this campaign to advocate to end this ill tradition. We will be running woman football cup and work with the local bodies to abolish the huts (Chaupratha) where women are forced to live. We will be organizing football tournaments to raise funds to run this campaign and promote sanitation, hygiene and safety of woman including empowerment.
