Project Description: Putali Nepal provides information and resources on menstrual hygiene management (MHM) to individuals, schools, activists as well as organisations that work with girls, women and communities in the WASH sector. They introduced the Menstrupedia Comic, a friendly guide about periods developed in India as well as Ruby Cup, a menstrual cup produced from high quality medical-grade silicon as a healthy and sustainable way to deal with periods to Nepal.
