Final Report for 100% Education Project

Dear Supporters,

This is our final report on what has been a very successful project focused on providing a better future for girls in rural Nepal, living in communities where the illegal practice of Chhaupadi is carried out. During their monthly period woman and girls can be exiled from their homes and schools to unhygienic cow sheds or similar, being considered in traditional culture unclean and a danger to the purity of the home.

We reported back in November ’23 that the 100% Project was fully funded for the final year (Phase 3) of the project. Funds were raised through GlobalGiving and from a number of charitable trusts and donor organisations. In total, with a big thank you to all involved we have raised £179,000.

The responsibility for completing year 3 was taken over by our project partners DIRIDC and Stichting Nepal and primarily involves installing WASH facilities, school incinerators and disposal pits for waste, tailor training in sewing sanitary pads & educating boys about periods across a further 40 schools in Baglung district. This work is now well advanced and progressing to plan.

Across the 3 years the main achievements of the project include:

  • Improved access to WASH facilities for all school children i.e. wash basins, child friendly taps, toilets etc. with children now washing their hands routinely after using the toilets
  • Girls now being able to manage sanitary pads properly in the school environment
  • Many young and adult women having gained access to washable pads in rural settings and having received vocational training in how to make washable pads
  • Rural tailoring shops making and selling washable pads using local materials have become more common and more accessible across the Baglung district
  • Schools having started to raise awareness levels amongst their students about the importance of sanitary hygiene and the schools themselves now being more aware of the need for repairing and maintaining school WASH facilities
  • Awareness amongst local government officials, parents, teachers and students being raised re the importance of hygiene in  preventative health care

Together we can all be happy that this life changing project has made a real difference to the lives of others and has supported many young girls in attending school. We would like to thank once again all our donors and partners for making this possible and have now formally closed the project for donations.
