1st Night of Sustainable Entrepreneurship in Madagascar

Organized by the organization Terres en Mêlées.

On September 18, 2018, the organization Terres en Mêlées, a partner of BFV-Société Générale since 2014, is organizing the 1st Night of Sustainable Entrepreneurship in Madagascar, an event that will take place at the French Institute of Madagascar featuring six young committed women entrepreneurs. The film "La Jeune Fille au ballon ovale" (translated as Marcelia and the ball), a hymn to youth and sport in Madagascar, will also be shown on this occasion.  

Terres en Mêlées, supported by the Societe Generale’s Foundation since 2015, is an organization that works in France and abroad to contribute to the development of children, the integration of young people and intercultural exchanges. In the south of Madagascar, it promotes rugby as a tool for education and integration for 40,000 children and adolescents.
On the agenda: the fight against prejudice, education, environmental protection and professional integration. The feature film will kick off the event, also in the presence of the film's female lead. After a session of debates, discussions and moments of sharing and collective reflection, the evening will finally end with a great rugby match!

In the presence of Malagasy, French and international institutions, large companies and SMEs, as well as Oxford's prestigious rugby team, this evening aims to be a crossroads between young people in the process of integration and local economic actors around sustainable development and the social and solidarity economy.

Terres en Mêlées thus perpetuates, through its cultural and sporting activities, the mission of the Societe Generale’s Foundation in favor of education through sport.

After months of preparation with Malagasy Rugby and the National Education Minister, Terres en Mêlées has announced it will hold a second nationwide school rugby championship in Madagascar.
