Families in the Mountains

The project called “Family in the mountains” aims to enable vulnerable families living in the territory of the Chamonix Mont-Blanc Valley to take part in sports activities for a social and territorial inclusion.

Target Group: Disadvantaged families
Impact: 25 people // 6 days // 150 Outdoor Activity Days

We will organize a cycle of daily activities combined with a weekend in the mountains which will have been built with the families. By practicing mountain trekking and other outdoor activities, we aim for families to re-appropriate the mountain space, to appreciate sharing activities within the family, and to optimize their environmental education. The families, which will be at the heart of the action, have been identified by our partner “EPDA for specialized prevention”. This program will be implemented from summer 2021.

About the Organisation

Created in 1995, the non-profit “En Passant par La Montagne” allows kids and adults in underprivileged or difficult situations – social marginalization, failing in school / school dropouts, sickness or handicap – to use the mountains and outdoor sports as a source of motivation and support to rise above their current situation.
