The Butterfly Project reflects our vision of Butterfly Effect. Through our workshops and training, we implement enquiry based customized learning programs where children ,young adults and general community members are facilitated to understand the existing social issues and explore their potential to solve them in their own capacities. This, we believe will enhance their interest as well as passion in terms of bringing change in the community through the meaningful steps our participants take that could bring long lasting social as well as behavioral transformation in the long run.

What do our participants have to say about our Flagship Project?
I learned many things about menstruation today. I learned, why menstruation takes place and what we should during menstruation. I liked the way it was told that there is no need to be shy and learned we should always reach out to our mothers when we get our first periods.
I learned why menstruation occurs, how we can track it and how we can use pads during periods. I also learned what foods we need to eat during menstruation and the practices existing in our village and homes related to periods.
I am very grateful to Putali Nepal for holding this session. I learned a lot about menstruation and can now help my child transition towards menstruation after knowing about how her body changes and how I can make it more comfortable for her during her first and upcoming periods. As my daughter also participated in the session, I am hopeful, she will be able to manage her periods more effectively even when I am not around. Something I really loved about the session was how a little girl, Samanata shared her experience on menstruation, which I feel will help my daughter understand on how it is okay to share about periods to someone else without feeling ashamed.
Thank you for visiting us and conducting this workshop . Thank you for sharing us the information and making us capable to share the information about menstruation in our community too. I learned that menstruation is a natural process and there is nothing to feel or be disgusted about. We should teach this to everyone.
I never had a talk on menstruation openly with my daughter before as I felt that she is still too young. However after today’s workshop I realized that it’s high time to give it a thought.
