Ireo tanora dia anisan'ny voakasika indrindra amin'ny fahasarotan’ny famatsiana rano, amin’ireo olana mikasika ny fanadiovana sy ny fidiovana, saingy matetika izy ireo dia tsy henoina akory na hadino mihitsy aza raha tonga ny fotoana ikaroham=bahaolana mikasika izany. Andao hampianarina sy hampahalalàna ireo zaza sy ireo tanora izany fahasarotan’ny famatsiana rano izany mba hahafahan'izy ireo mandray andraikitra amin'ny maha olon’ny fanovana azy ireo!

Amin’ny Sabotsy izao, ho fanamarihana ny Hetsika Iray Volan’ny Rano, izahay dia manomana diabe hamakivaky ny tanàna izay hiarahana amin’ireo mpianatra rehetra eto Fort Dauphin mba hisarihana ny sain'ny mponina mikasika ireo olana manodidina ny RF2 (WASH) eto Madagasikara. Andao koa ianao mba ho namanay hiaraka aminay e!

Happy #InternationalForestsDay!

Madagascar’s littoral forest is a rare and threatened habitat, with Sainte Luce littoral forest comprising 2.4% of Madagascar’s total coverage.

Within it's diminishing forest fragments reside three nocturnal lemur species. Project Ala will be developing biological corridors to connect five forest remnants within one forest fragment, helping to safeguard the future of these keystone species.

Amin’ny fotoana manao ahoana isika no mianatra sy tokony hahafantatra ny maha-zava-dehibe ny fanasana tànana amin’ny rano sy savony? Natoron’ireo raiamandreny avy tany an-trano izany ary
mbola nohamafisin’ireo mpampianatra ihany koa tany an-tsekoly. Ny sekoly moa dia toy ny sehatra iray azo antoka indrindra sy mety mba hahafahana manorina sy manamafy ny fiovan-toetra tsara toy
ny fanasana tànana amin’ny rano sy savony.

Izany no mahatonga ny SEED Madagascar tsy manome na manorina na mizara kabone sy tobim-panasana tanana fotsiny eny anion’ny sekoly, fa ampiarahany amin’ny fanabeazana ara-panadiovana sy fidiovana (RF2) izany, mba hahatonga ny mpianatra manana sy mampivoatra ireo fahazarana miteraka fahasalamana maharitra mandritra ny androm-piainana. #LeaveNoOneBehind

When do we learn the importance of handwashing? It’s passed on by parents and taught in schools. Schools act as the perfect environment to build and reinforce good behaviours like handwashing.

That’s why SEED Madagascar works to not only provide toilets and hand washing facilities in schools but complement this with WASH education to build healthy habits that last a lifetime. #LeaveNoOneBehind

Madame Sana Edwige is the Headmistress of Manambaro Primary School, fulfilling her childhood dream to work as a teacher. She's adamant that girls and boys are treated equally in the classroom, and given equal opportunities within education. She thinks of #IWD as “a freedom day for women”.

It’s a “time for the women to gather and communicate: to talk to each other”, as well as a “time for the women to have a party”.

Happy #InternationalWomensDay from all of us at SEED Madagascar!

Tsy zavatra moramora izany atao hoe vehivavy izany raha eto Madagasikara. Lany amin’ny fantsakana na fitadiavana rano ho an’ny fianakaviana ny ankabeazan’ny fotoananao isan’andro.
Noho ny tsy fisiana na ny tsy fahampian’ny toeram-pivoahana na ny kabone ihany koa dia mety hampitombo ny fifindran’ireo otrik’aretina izay vokatry ny fangerena ankalamanjana. Mety hisy koa fotoana tsy maintsy hanapahanao ny fianaranao, indrindra mandritra ny fahatongavan’ny fadim-bolanao, satria any an-tsekoly dia tsy mba misy toerana manokana azo antoka sy tsy hitan’ny hafa mba hahafahanao misasa sy midio ary misolo am-pilaminana.

SEED Madagascar dia miezaka sy miasa mafy tokoa aty atsimo atsinanan'i Madagasikara manangana ireny tobim-pamatsian-drano ireny mba hahafahan’ny mponina mahazo rano fisotro madio sy azo antoka, manamboatra foto-drafitr’asa mikasika ny fanadiovana toy ny kabone sy toeram-panasana tanana ary mitaiza sy manabe mikasika ny fidiovana, indrindra ho an’ireo vehivavy sy ireo tovovavy.

Ity dia Hetsika Iray Volan’ny Rano, #LeaveNoOneBehind.
Raha te-hahalala misimisy kokoa mikasika ny tetik’asa FR2 (WASH) ato aminay ianao dia tsidiho ny:

It is not easy being female in Madagascar. You can spend hours each day collecting water. The lack of toilets makes it more likely to contract infections from open defecation. You might miss school because there is not a place for you to manage your period with confidence and dignity.

SEED Madagascar is working hard to provide safe water, sanitation facilities and hygiene education to empower women and girls in south-east Madagascar. This #WaterActionMonth, #LeaveNoOneBehind.

“[Because of the Spice Girls] At 12 years old, with my three best friends, we decided to build a crew and then we'd dare to dance in public for about 3 years, no matter our age and gender”.

This #InternationalWomensDay she is reflecting on important moments in her life that have shaped her view on gender equality and what it means to her, to be a woman in Madagascar.

Meet Georgette, she is a single mum of six, and one of the hundreds of families Project Oratsimba visited during their survey.

What are basic necessities that everyone in the community should be able to have and nobody should have to go without? This was the central question in their survey and with this information, Project Oratsimba can create poverty indexes specific to the communities they work in.
