The Community is building their school

Everybody carries bricks for the new school
Everybody carries bricks for the new school

The village of Fiarenana is currently building their school literally brick by brick! The photos we got from Madagascar are amazing and we encourage you to visit our website’s link below to witness this truly community wide effort. (Pictures indeed tell more than a thousand words). Zahana is currently interviewing the new candidates for teachers. As soon as the right candidate has been found in consultation with community representatives, a teacher’s training will be conducted in the village for a month. In keeping with Zahana’s philosophy, the trainer from the capital will live and work in the teacher’s community, providing a truly tailor-made training.

Based on the community’s request, the educational specialist will not only focus on training the new teacher/s, but also provide an adult literacy class for the parents at the same time. The teacher will participate in this segment and learn skills for future adult education.

To learn more about the schools’ role in the community please and the ideas of a “rural university,” please see the pdf file under additional project documentation.

Hot off the digital press: Zahana and its founder Dr. Ramihanataniarivo are features in the latest issue of the University of Hawaii Magazine Malamalama (Malamalama means 'the light of knowledge' in Hawaiian). We have included the link below.
