Santa visits the school in Madagascar

The children had been asked to draw pictures of objects or events that they associate with going to school. Misaotra on the backboard is ‘thank you’ in Malagasy.

Christmas is a very important holiday for our villages in Madagascar. A Christmas tree inside the classroom is part of the celebration.

For a few years now (since 2007) Santa Claus comes to visit the school children with gifts. This year Santa brought orange bags to both our schools with a toothbrush, toothpaste, a pencil, a ball pen, and soap. In addition Santa also bought a package of cookies and a sweet treat.

And yes, with the end of the tax year coming up, the tribute card challenge is still on until December 31.

Happy 2011!

Ihanta, Jeannette and Markus
