News from the AIC in Madagascar

Twinning LCUSA / AIC Madagascar

Financial help was received on November 7th 2014 : 5843 Euros. The schooling project and nutrition of the poor children is ongoing, in addition to other sorts of activities such as empowering mothers and forming them in hygiene and health care.

At the end of 2013, the World Food Program (WFP) stopped helping the groups in food supplies and the volunteers began to be worried about how to continue with the daily meals for the hundreds of children who attend school. Fortunately, PROVIDENCE is always there and how happy we were when we heard about the subsidies sent by the Ladies of Charity USA.

Upon agreement from the AIC Project Service, we decided to send money to the groups who look after many pupils according to the table below. Most of the financial help will be used for the daily nutrition of the children during this school year:

200 children from 5 years old (kindergarten) to 18-20 years old (University) attend our Centre 5 days a week.
At noon they come back from school and are given a meal. Our Centre functions during the school year from October to July (for 10 months).

Giving food to these poor children is very important as it allows them to continue their studies. Education is a way to fight against poverty.
