Founded in 1937, Plan International is a development and humanitarian organisation that advances children’s rights and equality for girls through education and employment skills training. Plan works in 56 countries in Africa, Asia and Latin America and helps around 34 million girls and boys

76,9 % of the young people in the world who are neither employed nor enrolled in a school or training program are women. Equality between girls and boys is the corner stone of our programs.

We are grateful for the support of our amazing sports ambassador Nathalie Mauclair, double trail World Champion and 2015 UTMB edition winner. (https://www.plan-international.fr/blog/2018/04/nathalie-mauclair-notre-nouvelle-ambassadrice-sportive)

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.

We thank you all from the bottom of our hearts for defending our cause, which is equality between boys and girls!

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.

Activity report supported by the UTMB® solidarity bibs since 2017 :

  • Labor market study to identify local employment opportunities: confection, breeding and dairy production, hotel services, tourism industry, plumbing.
  • Awareness campaign, community mobilization and youth recruitment,
  • 485 young people took part in vocational training sessions
  • 538 women have already been trained to professions
  • 318 women have been trained to the management of business (confection, touristic guide, masonry)

Run for Plan International, support these young women!
