Girls Fund Monthly Donation
BANGLADESH MENSTRUAL PROJECT
Period is considered as a strange disease due to a lack of education. “If my mother was with me, maybe I could discuss my problems with her. Maybe she could help me.” , said Samia, a 15-year-old Bangladeshi girl.
There are widespread myths and false information among girls about menstruation being a strange disease or even a curse in Bangladesh. It makes girls feel helpless when facing their first menstruation.
Let’s support Girls Fund and make the world a better place for underprivileged girls!
With your monthly HK$60 donation (only HK$2 daily) to Girls Fund, community programmes can be launched to identify and respond to the barriers girls face. It is only through giving girls equal rights that they can fully develop their potential and live life to the fullest. You may also choose to make one-off donation.
Your donation will be used directly to support the programmes that help Bangladesh and disadvantaged girls in other countries, to improve their lives and health, escape from “period poverty” and “period shaming”.
For every Girls Fund monthly donor will receive a limited edition Thank You pack by Plan International, with sponsor’s gifts of skin cleanser products and tea bags. (Available while stock last)

*For monthly donation, first credit card transaction will be made immediately, subsequent transactions will be processed on or around the 15th of each month (starting from next month).
Some countries are affected by stigma and taboos, girls feel humiliated by menstruation. While some countries see first period as a special moment worth celebrating, it's a coming-of-age event for girls.
Let's get to know each of the first menstrual rituals in various countries.
Allocation of donations
Plan International will allocate donations for designated projects in accordance with the donor’s intent. However, when the designated project is fully funded, additional donations will be used where needed most for more efficient use of resources without prior notice.
