Could You Cups and Baala Pads

Could You Cups and Baala Pads at Bishwa Shanti Chiran Milan Campus On the occasion of Mr Sridhar Gundrothu’s Nepal visit, we had planned a menstrual cup and pad distribution program at Bishwa Bhanti Chiran Milan Campus. This campus is where our Chairperson Kanchhi Maya Tamang is currently pursuing her Bachelors degree. Mr. Sridhar is advisory board of Save the Child Foundation USA and is also the person who bridged the partnership with Could You? Menstrual cups. In the morning of December 7, 2022, Mamata Shah, Ruby Sthapit and Surabhi Khanal gathered in the premises of Bishwa Shanti Chiran Milan Campus at 7:45 AM to prepare for the program afterwards. We were invited by the principal of the campus for a meet and greet session until Kanchhi Maya Tamang and Mr. Sridhar joined us. Once they arrived, we moved on to start the program. The program started with a brief welcome speech from the coordinator Mr. Sanjiv Mishra of the campus who welcomed our team to their campus. Then, Mamata Shah took the mic over to give an introduction about our organization and the areas that we work on. Then, Surabhi Khanal highlighted about menstrual hygiene management and its importance and introduced Could You? Menstrual cups and Baala Pads as menstrual hygiene products. Followed by Ruby Sthapit and Kanchhi Maya tamang, they provided details and a presentation on how to use both; Could You? Menstrual Cups and Baala Pads and also address the queries of the participants. Then we asked if there were participants who were willing to switch to Could You? Menstrual Cups or Baala Pads and form two queues accordingly. We then distributed the products respectively according to the needs of the participants. Followed by distribution, we provided breakfast for all of the participants of the event including the team and wrapped up the event.
