Madagascar

Father Pedro Opeka


In 1995, MAP met Father Pedro Pablo Opeka, who devoted his life to save Malagasy children and adults from the curse of the public dumps in Antananarivo. With MAP’s help, he organized landfill communities, making them build their own homes and work together to improve their lives. In 2017, the city of Akamasoa hosted 25,000 inhabitants.


In 1997, MAP funded the construction of the Akamasoa educational compound with the “Rainier III Primary School”, “ The Grimaldi High School”, “The Prince Albert College”, and “The Cantine du Rocher” (offering a meal to 2.800 children daily). Later, the "Dispensary Princess Grace" ensured the health care and the vaccination of thousands of children. In Ambialana, to replace unsanitary slums, 106 homes were built.


In 2001, MAP financed sewing machines and a teacher’s salary for a sewing and handcraft training workshop for battered and abandoned women in Itaosy. 


In 2007, MAP constructed the hospital in the Safata region, the "Alakamisy High School" (1000 children) and the "Alakamisy College" (150 children). 


In 2009, in the Akamasoa region, MAP built a house for the young bush people, training them in both farming and livestock farming. 


Father Noe


Since 2002, MAP has supported Father Noé in the regions of Nosy Be and Tananarive. We have built schools and provided them with equipment for the education of children. Also, MAP financed the flour for bread rolls to feed the 1.200 pupils daily from the Nosy Be school, and a daily hot meal for the children of the Andasibe kindergarten and primary school.


Between 2012 and 2014, MAP built two additional classes at the Ambanitsena School, added an extra floor at the school of Andranovo and other two classes at the Mandrasoa Ivato School. MAP has continued to finance the flour for bread rolls, and purchased sixty bicycles to offered to the 3 most deserving children of each class of the Andasibé-Ampefy school. In Mandrasoa Ivato, MAP built a small house for the sewing and computer workshops.


Mr. Cyril Judge


Since 2004, MAP has allocated € 48,000 to Mr. Cyril Juge, honorary consul of Monaco in Madagascar, to enable him to carry out humanitarian actions in the medical and education fields.


Other


In 2014, MAP funded the creation of the "Rice Bank" by the Don Bosco Fathers, buying and storing tons of rice to distribute to families in the poor region of Mahajanga in the north of Madagascar.

In the Village of Ankobahoba, financial aid was sent for the equipment and the completing of a small school.
