What do young people want to do in the world when they finish school?
We’ve spent a lot of time listening to young people across Bihar. Young women want to become policewomen, lawyers to make the world safe for other girls and women to go to school and work. Young men want to start problem-solving enterprises that take other young people along with them and take on what they see as a threat to everyone’s future: pollution, plastic, climate change.
Get a Plan runs in 1,000 Government Secondary Schools across Bihar, India from Grade 9-12 for the next four years. Through an MOU with the Government of Bihar to support the printing of the stories and teacher training, it’s a groundbreaking commitment to young people and the future of Bihar.
