Awards for our teachers and gardeners

Zahana's Assitant Teacher Awarded

In July we had a visit from Madagascar’s Minister of health and our two villages! Read more about the visit on our website.

Despite her busy schedule the Minister of Health took time to honor our teachers for their efforts. She personally handed out awards two both of our teachers, their assistants, and Zahana’s gardeners. We have included the (avilable) photos of these events.

The Minster of Health gave a special award to the students of our school in Faidanana. They made the second place for planting the most trees as a small forest on the slope behind their school and in their school yard. The community decided that their efforts as a group count as if it would be a person. The students planted and watered the little trees and well deserve this award and the recognition.

They accomplished that with the guidance of Zahana’s gardener Bary, who besides working for the community also assists with the school garden.

In addition to the awards,both, Zahana’s gardeners and teachers were got one pack of t-shirt, a cap, a lavalava and a wall hanging clock.

All of Zahana’s students were presented with a t-shirts.
