Misaotra betsaka, Thank You very much! Merci Beaucoup! Vielen Dank! Muito Obrigado, Kiitoksia Paljon!!!
You did it! We made the goal and above with the Global Giving Challenge. We rank 8 out of 75 participants and got 124 contributors according to the website!
This would not have been possible without all of you contributing and getting your friends to donate. You have earned Zahana a permanent space on Global Giving. On Friday we sent the good news via SMS/text message to Madagascar and got this reply a few minutes later: “You're right, it's incredible. Congratulations! We all got it.”
Zahana will now be able to work in a second village and help people to transform their lives for the better. The first step now is a formal community meeting in Fiarenana, to establish official ties with the community, the elders and Zahana. This is often a day-long event in Madagascar, where future joint actions are discussed and decided.
Ihanta, Jeannette and Markus
