Projects

We have been working in the Anosy region of southeast Madagascar for over almost 20 years. Our projects include school building, natural resource management, rainwater harvesting, conservation, healthcare, sanitation and sustainable livelihoods development. We believe that by coordinating projects across all these areas at once we can make a greater impact overall. We are dedicated to providing locally developed initiatives based on the expressed needs of our partner communities. Based on partnership, co-management and skill-sharing by individuals, communities and local organisations our approach will lead to lasting change.

How we work

We work with communities to address their health and education needs, promote diverse livelihood strategies, and facilitate sustainable natural resource management. Rather than our programmes being dreamed up in an office far from where they're implemented, all of our projects are suggested by Malagasy staff in Madagascar. In fact, we're constantly building capacity so that one day projects can be developed and run entirely by Malagasy staff.

We have various projects in four key areas: community health, education, sustainable livelihoods and environment. Our holistic approach to development and conservation means all of our departments and projects work together to make a greater impact on our aim - eradicating poverty, suffering and environmental damage.
