MAMOTRATRAKA PUBLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL CONSTRUCTION - 2015

On November 20, 2014, Georges Raelisaona arrived in Madagascar and went to the rural  village of Mamotratraka, located 20 km in the outskirt of the coastal town of Manakara. His mission was  to lead the construction of a modern and cyclone resistant school building donated by Hope For Madagascar and its partners. This project is funded primarily by Subsaharischer Afrika, a German Non Profit organization based in Kreuztal, Germany and Hope For Madagascar in Boulder, Colorado, USA. The community members of the neighboring villages contribute as well by providing building materials such as sand, gravel and lumber.

FORMULA FOR HOPE - Launching in Spring Summer 2015

Hope For Madagascar is pleased to announce a collaborative fund raising and infrastructure improvement project launched with Helen Kaminski, the iconic hat & bag brand from Australia.

Why Madagascar?

Helen Kaminski originally established a raffia workshop in Madagascar in 1985 and continues to source raw raffia from the same communities it connected with 30 years ago. A deep appreciation of long-standing cross-cultural relationships inspired the brand to seek out ways to empower local communities. As such the collaborative partnership with Hope For Madagascar was formed to raise funds for community empowerment projects.

How you can support the project:

Proceeds from the purchase of Helen Kaminski's exclusively designed "Formula for Hope's small accessories will go towards Hope For Madagascar's initiaives. Funds raised from the sale of charms will help support the project's long-term commitment to educational and social programs for Malagasy community members. In 2015, Helen Kaminski and Hope For Madagascar are collaborating on the infrastructure upgrade of a rural primary school. "Formula for Hope" accessories can be purchased exclusively from Helen Kaminski brand and ecommerce stores from January 2015 (not all styles available in all stores).

Providing youth with an opportunity to experience another way of life can impact how they contribute to society for the rest of their lives. With this in mind, Hope For Madagascar has developped a "Life Experience Exchange Program" for children ages 8-12 who are brought together from the rainforest, desert and city to learn about various cultures within the country. They are taught about resource renewal, sustainability, play games, sing songs and plant trees.

One van load at a time, 12 children and two teachers would travel approximately for 8 hours to get from one region of the country to the other. Upon arriving, children would be hosted by local families for two days. These future leaders would be expected to share their experiences with their classmates/village upon their return.
