In the Anosy Region, where SEED Madagascar works, children don't have much chance of completing primary school. In fact, half of all school aged children have never even been to primary school, let alone graduated or attended middle or high school. Government-provided infrastructure is severely limited, the number of paid teachers has declined, and teacher training is now almost non-existent.
Out of 100 children that start primary school, only 35 enrol in middle schoolUNICEF, 2013
Through our education projects SEED Madagascar aims to tackle this shortfall by building new schools, repairing existing buildings, providing furniture and facilities to schools which don't have enough, and supporting teachers to teach. SEED Madagascar’s assistance with infrastructure and educational projects is highly sought after. Members of our Project Development and Construction teams work together with local government and communities to implement education projects throughout the region, often with help from international volunteers via our Group volunteering programme.
