As a comment from us: It is always a good sign, when the reports from the schools are uneventful and children ‘just’ can go the school every day and learn (and eat). Here is a quick end of the year review we got from Madagascar:

Current Students enrollment in Zahana’s schools:

  • Fiarenana: 46 (basically every child of school age)
  • Fiadanana: 81

At Zahana’s school our head teacher Mparany, based on your recommendation, does not to accept children under 5 of age at our school anymore (in his single classroom). This has worked out very well for him, since he can now focus on teaching instead of childcare for little ones. The public school in Fiadanana also now also finally open and this way more children can go to this school as well, which is very good for us. The solar cookers in the schools are working all day.

In other important community news: the Health Center for Fiadanana is almost finished (see the groundbreaking in July). We just got this photo of an almost completed building, with our traditional healer Raleva checking out its progress.
