Why the island of Ste Marie of Madagascar ?

 

This island is prone annually to many cyclones. In 2008 Hurricane Ivan particularly affected Ambohitra, a village of roughly 300 inhabitants, located 7 km north of the city of Ambodifotatra.

 

After each new cyclone, it is increasingly difficult for residents to rebuild their village.

The association was created in 2009 to support the residents in their reconstruction efforts and the creation of a school for its 65 students was seen as a first common priority.

 

Goals and mission of the association

- Support the schooling (school

operations and teaching materials).

 

- Promote local crafts.

- Facilitate access to medical care and prevention.

 

Goals already accomplished :

 

1 : participation in the creation of an association for women: the role of coordination and liaison with the outside.

 

2 : initiation of a project to build a school constructed along anti-cyclonic standards.

 

3 : supply of furniture and teaching materials.

 

4 : support of local authorities with a commitment to maintaining teaching positions.

 

5 : delivery and installation of a generator for the school.

 

6 : training for caregivers, including 6 doctors and a medical ultrasound.

 

 

Projects :

 

- Creation of an office for a craft workshop and to store products and crops.

- Audiovisual equipment for the school.

- Establishment of a canteen.

- Construction of housing for teachers.

- Construction of a sports field with sports equipment.
