Be Artsy

Be Artsy

Based in Barcelona and working in Nepal.

The Rato Baltin Project aims to eradicate ‘chhaupadi’ which exiles women during menstruation.  Working with community health workers, teachers, political leaders and local NGOs, for girls, boys, women and their communities since 2016. We think that education is the only way to change these deeply held beliefs. With participative photography we invite them to speak about their menstruation, and we speak of the healthy and environmentally friendly solution: the menstrual cup. We have distributed more than 2,000 menstrual cups, a metal bucket and training to girls in remote villages.

Our goal is to destigmatize menstruation as a normal biological function, and reduce the prevalence of chhaupadi. This empowers girls and women with  confidence to attend school and be active in public spaces.
