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.
We work with widowed women to help them to have their dignity back
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.
Education is really important to break the chain of poverty
