Zahana

Zahana in Madagascar is dedicated to participatory rural development, education, revitalization of traditional Malagasy medicine, reforestation, and sustainable agriculture. It is Zahana's philosophy that participatory development must be based on local needs and solutions proposed by local people. It means asking communities what they need and working with them collaboratively so they can achieve their goals. Each community's own needs are unique and require a tailor -made response

Video: How to build a school with the community

Dear friends,

As a loose sequel to our last progress report about the water system and our participatory approach, The Tscherman Chef cooked something up again: a video with the community effort as ingredients.

Development needs to be serious? (Although the issues sure still are.) If you spent 1 minute and 40 seconds watching our video on Youtube you can find out. The slide show about building the school is still my personal favorite page on our website. The video will also feature soon on our GlobalGiving project page “A community school for all (children) in Fiarenana”

And a reminder GlobalGiving’ Bonus Day begins at one minute after midnight EDT on on Wednesday June 13, 2012 (Eastern Daylight Time or same time zone as New York).

The formula is simple: your donations to Zahana will be matched at 50%. Last time GlobalGiving ran out of matching funds, please try early in the day if you want to supersize you donation by 50% with the click of a mouse. Details on our website.

Dear friends,

Wanting to build a school for their children was the motivation for the community of Fiarenena to invite Zahana to partner with them in 2009.

The Tscherman Chef cooked something up: a video with the community effort as ingredients.

Cooking up a video about our school

The Tscherman Chef cooks something up again: a video with the community effort as ingredients.

Who says development work needs to be serious? (Although the issues sure still are.) Participatory development means to work together, if you spent 1 minute and 40 seconds watching the video on Youtube (and later on our project page), you'll find out. Please feel free to leave a comment on YouTube. 

And quick reminder: Bonus Day begins at 12:01 am Eastern Daylight Time on Wednesday June 13, 2012. (That is one minute after midnight on June 13 in the New York time zone).

The formula is simple: your donations to Zahana will be matched at 50%. Last time GlobalGiving ran out of matching funds, please try early in the day if you want to super size you donation by 50% with the click of a mouse. There is a total of $75,000 in matching funds available. Once funds have been depleted, no more donations will be matched by GlobalGiving. Details

Best regards,

Markus
