Thank you to the Westpac Giving Circle!

We would like to express our deep gratitude to the Westpac Giving Circle for providing a grant to the Bhutan Girls’ Project, through Days for Girls Australia. The Giving Circle was established by a group of Westpac employees to donate and raise funds for the Bhutan Girls’ Project. Funds donated by the Giving Circle have been generously matched by Westpac Bank. We would like to thank Westpac Bank, Good2Give and the individual members of the Westpac Giving Circle for our project: Deepti Bhatt, Rebecca Booth, Mohinee Deo, Kathleen Keely, Brigitte Liew, Apoorv Parashar, Jasmine Parer, Lavinia Rarinca, Neena Shukla, Geeta Sully and Emma Wiltshire. We would also like to extend special thanks to Carin Lavery and Lynne Umbers for their support during the project.


With their support and our joint donor, the dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation we are launching a pilot program to distribute 1000 Days for Girls Washable Menstrual Health kits to school girls in Bhutan. We are working in close partnership with  RENEW and the Bhutanese Ministry of Education, School Health and Nutrition Division.

Menstrual and reproductive health education will be provided by our partners to the Bhutanese school girls receiving the DfG kits. This education is a vital aspect of the mission of Days for Girls to improve outcomes for these girls. 

Just as importantly, monitoring and evaluation of the pilot will be undertaken by our partners in association with Days for Girls International. Our hope is that the pilot will be demonstrated to be a success and that a sustainable presence for DfG might be possible in Bhutan through the establishment of a Days for Girls Enterprise. This would mean that DfG Kits may be made in Bhutan on a sustainable basis.

The BGP has been working steadily since 2015 towards this goal and it is exciting to be at the stage where our pilot is about to begin. Just before we do launch off, we’d like to take a moment to acknowledge the generous support of the Westpac Giving Circle, which has made this pilot possible. 

Thank you Deepti, Rebecca, Mohinee, Kathleen, Brigitte, Apoorv, Jasmine, Lavinia, Neena, Geeta, Emma and Westpac Bank! We are so grateful for your support and we look forward to providing updates on our progress.

Days for Girls Pilot in Bhutan

Bhutan Girls' Project

Days for Girls Pilot in Bhutan

The Bhutan Girls’ Project was started in 2015 with the aim of supporting Days for Girls in Bhutan. 

We are excited to share that we will soon start a pilot project in Bhutan in partnership with RENEW and the Bhutanese Ministry of Education School Health and Nutrition Division. 

We are grateful to our donors: dōTERRA Healing Hands Foundation and the Westpac Giving Circle for the generous funds to make this pilot possible. 

Our pilot project is to provide 1,000 Days for Girls Washable Menstrual Health Kits (DfG Kit) to the Bhutanese Ministry of Education to be distributed to school girls in need in Bhutan. Monitoring and evaluation of the use of the kits by the girls will be undertaken by the Bhutanese Ministry of Education to assess their reception. Our hope is that the Pilot will be a success and that steps may be taken to establish a DfG Enterprise in Bhutan, so that kits may be made within Bhutan on a sustainable basis. 

We have been working to support DfG in Bhutan since 2015 and we would like to acknowledge our gratitude to many people who have helped us on this journey. From the start, READ Bhutan supported this project through the distribution of donated kits to girls in need. Many of the photos displayed on this site are from the kit distributions undertaken by READ Bhutan. We are also grateful to a team of Bhutanese volunteers who worked with us to support DfG in Bhutan.

We are looking forward to providing updates on the progress of our pilot. Please enter your email in the follow box in the side bar if you’d like to receive our updates by email. 

Thank you for your interest and support!

The Bhutan Girls’ Project team.
