    Why they study hard
    By - Markus Faigle - Volunteer Project Director
    Since three of Zahana’s students attend secondary school in Bevato, it galvanized the other kids in the village to attend school regularly.

    Our two schools in the villages
    By - Markus Faigle - Volunteer Project Director

Here is a quick end of the year review we got from Madagascar: Current Students enrollment in Zahana’s schools: Fiarenana: 46 (basically...

    Teacher Aids for both our schools
    By - Markus Faigle - Volunteer Project Director
    The cornerstone of participatory development is the ‘participatory’ part, or in more modern language the ‘buy in’ by the community, exemplified in the building of their school. This extends to buy-in on a local, hands-on community level, but also on the bigger, national level.  In this train of...

    Congratulations: The story about the Donne!
    By - Markus Faigle - Volunteer Project Director
    His parents chose wisely, when they named their son Donné, a French term, loosely translated as "given" or "gift".
