The Baseri Clinic (also known as the Deurali Community Service Center) in the remote village of Dhadagaun, Nepal, was a dream of CCF board members Sita Gurung and Denise Attwood. Sita had grown up in Dhadaguan without healthcare and knew that where there was a lack of access to basic healthcare as a result even the simplest issues had the potential to turn fatal.
Menstrual Pad Project
One part of CCF’s mission is to promote access to skills development so that marginalized individuals in Nepal can create economically viable communities. CCF also strives to address and resolve issues that are barriers to the education of girls. With these goals in mind, CCF launched the Menstrual Pad Project (MPP) in February of 2015. The goal being to create jobs by training women in the rural village of Baseri to sew reusable menstrual pad kits that they could sell to generate income and that CCF could purchase and distribute to rural and low income girls.
