Evelyne Binsack

Evelyne Binsack was born in Stans in 1967 and now lives in Central Switzerland when she is not adventuring. Her passions are the mountains and the South Pole.

She graduated one of the first women in Europe to train as a qualified mountain guide, was the first Swiss woman to climb Mount Everest in 2001, has mastered the north face of the Eiger (1990, 1994, 1999) single-handedly and climbed the highest peaks of the Himalayas and the Andes. Her greatest challenge was between 2006-2008, the extreme adventure in 484 days and 25'000 kilometres through 16 countries from Switzerland to the South Pole under her own muscle power by bicycle, on foot, with skis and sledges.

What appeals to me most about all the activities of Tansania lächelt is the promotion of the girls' mothers and their encouragement in school and professional matters and towards more self-confidence and an independent life . It is tragic enough that children, young people, end up in an orphanage. 

But the fact that mothers of girls, in addition to the already very difficult conditions of life, are also expelled or put in danger of being abused as an object because they have become pregnant, have given birth to children and are thus even more vulnerable to the surrounding society, that I find the height of tolerability. I like to draw attention to these abuses in particular and want to give these girls' mothers a voice.
