Help Children in Madagascar Gain an Education

Summary

This project will provide a three-classroom building (150 classroom places) and two three-cubicle, ventilated improved pit latrines with menstrual hygiene management facilities to children in southeast Madagascar, who are some of the poorest in the world. In the interests of sustainability, the infrastructure will be complemented by the creation of a Management and Maintenance Committee and teachers will be trained to deliver water, sanitation, and hygiene lessons.

Challenge

In the southeast Anosy region of Madagascar, only 32% of children attend secondary school. Located in an isolated rural commune, Ranomafana School is the only upper education facility within an 80km radius, yet it does not have its own school building, needing to borrow space from a local middle school and administrative building. In addition, 52% of people in rural areas practise open defecation and 6,900 children die each year from diarrheal-related diseases.

Solution

We will construct a three-classroom building, including an administrative office for the staff; each classroom will be furnished with 25 desk-benches for students, as well as a teachers' desk and chair, a blackboard, and a lockable cupboard. The infrastructure will provide 150 new classroom places and will be complemented with two three-cubicle, ventilated improved pit latrines. Teachers will be trained to deliver five 30-minute interactive lessons on water, sanitation, and hygiene management.

Long-Term Impact

By constructing this new high school, we aim to improve the educational output of the Anosy region, helping to break the cycle of poverty by giving the next generation a better chance of getting a higher education they need to advance. The water, sanitation, and hygiene programme will help to improve the area's sanitation by teaching the importance of hand washing and designated areas for defecation to reduce the spread of deadly diarrheal diseases.
