Hope For Madagascar generally plans to provide a school facility every 2 years for a village in need in Madagascar.







On October 23, 2011, Georges Raelisaona was sent to the rural village of Tsaratanana (a.k.a Croisement Sahasinaka) in the South East Coast of Madagascar to lead the construction of a modern and cyclone resistant school building. This project was funded primarily by Subsaharischer Afrika, a German Non Profit organization based in Kreuztal, Germany and Hope For Madagascar in Boulder, Colorado, USA. The villagers of Tsaratanana contributed by providing building materials such as sand, gravel and lumber.

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.
