The Malagasy word "fihavanana" does not directly translate into English.

Coming from the word 'havana' meaning kin, 'fihavanana' encompasses the concept of kinship, community and friendship and is also a synonym for peace! For a country renowned for its generosity and kindness, "fihavanana" is at the heart of Malagasy culture.
