What is Chaupadi?

Chaupadi is a tradition associated with the menstrual taboo. Which prohibits women and girls from participating in normal activities while menstruating as they are considered “impure”

The women are banned from the house and are required to live in some cattle shed, or a menstruation hut,

Its is believed that is a menstruating woman touches a tree, it will never again bear fruit, if she consumes milk, the cow will not give any more milk, if she reads a book, the goddess of education will become angry, if she touches a man he will be ill.

The female population of Nepal is more then 15 million, this stigma means 1 in 5 girls will miss school because of their periods.

Local Women’s Handicrafts developed reusable, anti bacterial, Anti Fungal, water proof, a material that can be biodegrade.
