Join Plan International Ireland in our Menstrual Cycle Event & help make sure girls do not miss out on their education because of their period!

Girls in West Africa are missing out on their education because they don’t have adequate access to period products. The start of a period for girls living in the world’s poorest communities can mean dropping out of education completely, leaving them at greater risk of child marriage, early pregnancy, sexual exploitation and child labour.

We believe that no girl should be held back because of her period.

By taking part in the Menstrual Cycle, you’ll be helping to raise vital funds for girls. Your €150 fundraising target could provide more than 12 dignity kits, that contain items such as reusable pads, soap and underwear. These kits will enable girls to stay in school.

There are two challenges within the Menstrual Cycle to choose from:

  1. The average menstrual cycle is 28 days, so we challenge you to cycle a total of 28 miles (45KM) any time in June.
  2. If you are a seasoned cyclist, please feel free to set your own target.

There is lots of flexibility with this challenge; choose your challenge length (it can be anything from 5 miles to 500 miles!) and then clock up the miles at a pace that suits you in June.
