Project in Madagascar

Project

Madagascar

Since 2011, more than 200 students have received free lunch and schooling at our school in Andrafiabe, in the North of the island.

For those who live far from the school, a dormitory was built in 2018 hence allowing them to sleep on site.

The foundation also supports the Children’s House in Ambanja, where nearly 170 children abandoned by their families are taken in. They eat and live well in a loving family atmosphere, and attend school. In 2021, we built an additional home to accommodate the 60 children who have arrived since 2020, due to the pandemic.

All our actions are coordinated with the Avotra Association and Father Stefano, a doctor and Capuchin priest who has been in Madagascar for more than 30 years.

Every year, students and teachers from Collège Champittet travel to Madagascar to follow up on our projects and define future needs.
