What do we do?
We are developing projects of creativity with the aim of empowering local communities through art, with a special focus on women’s issues.
The Rato Baltin Project is a program consisting of participatory photography, sex education and distribution of menstrual cups to eradicate Chhaupadi in Nepal. Chhaupadi is a tradition that considers women and girls impure while menstruating, exposing them to harmful stereotypes.
The Happy Women Project is a social enterprise business model to employ girls and women living in remote West Nepal, providing them an opportunity to earn an income for their family and to fight period poverty.
This project is based on the idea that, in the rural areas of Nepal where be artsy operates, for each additional year young girls remain at school, we can delay their marrying age by two years.
