Malaria is the main cause of disease and 75 mosquito nets will protect all beds in the village. Fiarenana, known for its fruit trees, had a successful three nursery years ago. Revitalizing the nursery, utilizing local expertise, will improve the availability of food and good nutrition, and create income producing seedlings and dried fruit to be sold throughout the region. Safe drinking water could be achieved by installing communal hand pump/s and the use of a solar water pasteurizer.
Providing mosquito nets helps reduce malaria. Funding the nursery revival generates a sustainable income source.New crops encourages crop diversity and serves as a role model for other villages. A solar water pasteurizer makes it safe to drink.
Fiarenana is ready to improve its situation and with its unique role of already growing and consuming fruits and other crops, is destined to become a model community that, leading by example, will become a mentor in village to village exchange.
