Dear Donor,

We reiterate our gratitude for the generous donation of $ 3398.00 received so far from 72 amazing donors who contributed to the project #40580 renovation of Anay training center located in the historical section of Fianarantsoa. With the COVID-19 pandemic impacting everyday life, we thank you for your continued support and wish you and your community health and peace. Right now, Halt Poverty faces new challenges. As we adapt to these unprecedented circumstances, we will continue to serve our communities as best we can. Recent circumstances have led us to suspend programs related to constructions.

On the one hand, May 11th, our local partner who oversees the renovation emailed us a new budget related to the project. Copies of the updated of the budget are available for review. On the other hand, to both ensure the safety of our community, and comply to the authority’s command, Madagascar lockdown remains until July 20th we have made necessary modifications to our programming that we would like to share with you.

While much of this is out of our control, we are dedicated to finding ways to serve our constituents and hope to resume programming soon. While the changes brought by the pandemic are significant, there is hope in some of the innovation emerging around the globe to address the impact of this stumbling block. We are thrilled you are part of this memorable journey. We look forward to resuming the original programming related to the renovation of this historical landmark once it is safe to do so. Stay home. Stay safe.

Warm regards,

Halt Poverty team,

Thank you for being a part of our team of supporters that are making our project a reality. We have been working hard to finish the renovation of this historical landmark to host our activities. You can see how long the journey has been. Since the end of the December the raining has been pouring. Hence we had to take a major decision to postpone all construction project including the renovation of our training center.

Nonetheless, we have been able to go on and pursue our efforts by giving back to the community due to the generous donation of $250 by GlobalGiving the same day.

Final Version of the Balcony
Final Version of the Balcony

Dear donor,

As mentioned in our September report, we are thrilled to show you the final version of the balcony of our training center. This means:

  • stability: we no longer have to move from one place to another to deliver capacity building programs
  • sympathy: we can provide a place to some of our female beneficiaries
  • security: we no longer have to reach unsafe areas
  • unity in diversity: we will be able to deliver the same format, resources to all beneficiaries. Some of our beneficiaries had to use their legs as a table due to the absence of adequate infrastructures in some regions.

We have realized that we carried out the routine of delivering our programs from one region to another without truly knowing who our beneficiaries are. We have implied that we have enough information about them based on excel sheets and few quantitative data retrieved from surveys and interviews. We have been busy with a multitude of activities. Leading us to lost perspective of whom we are serving.

One of the reasons, we are so grateful to each one of you for contribution. We are halfway to reach our goal. Your support not only helps ensure that we can continue to positively influence ignored labor pools of young adults to serve Madagascar hospitality and tourism industry, but also signifies the preservation of the architectural ensemble of the Old Town Fianarantsoa. Thank you for being a part of our team of supporters that are making our project a reality. We have been working hard to finish the renovation of this historical landmark to host our activities. You can see how long the journey has been.

We look forward to delivering you more news including the final version of the renovation once ready. Stay tuned! Until then, please see here after a short summary of our upcoming actions:
