Help young women stay in their Himalayan mountains!
Since 2013, Plan International France is active in the Himalayan state of Uttrakhand in order to fight against the rural exodus. Our Foundation helps young women access decent jobs and stay in their communities.
Economical emancipation of young women in India is still not a freedom which every girl can benefit from, given the sexist discriminations, the lack of training and decent jobs and inequality in salary compared to men. There are every year thousands of girls who are alone and isolated in the mountains because their husband left for the cities to provide for the household. Hence, Plan International has implemented an entrepreneurship and self-employment program (Saksham) to help these young women provide for their families.

A few words on our UTMB® experience from last year:
2019 UTMB edition was a wonderful sports and human adventure. Our participants Ann, Staffan, Emmanuel, Thomas, Samuel, François, Javier, Andrew and Peter came from all over the world to achieve an exceptional sporting and solidarity challenge! There was a very friendly atmosphere amidst our sports ambassador Nathalie Mauclair (2015 UTMB winner) and Plan International volunteers who came to run a booth during the event.
