Project Sekoly, Madagascar

  In Madagascar’s Anosy region half of 6-10-year-olds have never attended school, and a staggering 97% of the population do not have access to basic sanitation. Household education levels are shown to be linked to poverty rates, therefore education is crucial to allowing vulnerable children and the wider communities to escape the cycle of poverty.

The NCCT are supporting Project Sekoly, run by SEED Madagascar, which provided the Ranomfaca Lycee with the following facilities this summer:

Construction of a three-classroom school building, fully-furnished. Construction of an administrative office for the Head Teacher. Construction of two three-cubicle latrine blocks, complete with menstrual hygiene management facilities. Provision of a water pipe with three taps, providing access to running water. WASH nudges. WASH education training delivered to teachers. Establishment and training of WASH infrastructure management committee.

  This has enabled students to attend full days of school in hygienic grounds and understand the importance of hygiene and sanitation, which will reduce health problems. Access to education increases child safety and the potential for financial stability in future. Enjoy a short video of the  finished school:

 

 

We are now focussing on supporting people in Madagascar during the Covid-19 pandemic:

 

• Widespread dissemination of clear COVID-19 prevention message across a range of mediums
• Provision of essential equipment, such as masks and handwashing stations
• Capacity building training sessions for health care workers, schools, and government workers in rural and urban communities
