Hello lovelies,

We would like to take a moment to let you know how much we appreciate your kindness and support. August 23rd of this year, GG disbursed $226.90 for the project #44848 and support us to get closer to our goal to provide nutritious meals to 25 family a year. You are doing more than just filling people stomach. You are showing that there is good left in people, and that gives hope.

Our microgrant initiative is providing flexible support for families like Victor a tour guide from Anja community reserve.  The microgrant can be used to pay for whatever expenses that are most urgent – like paying for utilities, keeping food on the table, catching up on overdue bills, or simply launching a new project like "farming". Eligible hospitality and tourism community and residents in all regions of Madagascar can apply for a range of MGA 50,000 - MGA 100,000 to cover necessary expenses or gaps in income resulting from the economic repercussions of COVID-19. In its global spread the pandemic has brought tragic loss of life and livelihood and has disrupted the functioning of many social life.

The Anja Community Reserve is a woodland area and freshwater lake. Home to ring-tailed lemurs, brookesia, chameleons, and various caves. Located about 42 miles SouthWest of Fianarantsoa along National Road No.7, this incredible community strives to protect its habitat.

Together we are committed to ensuring that our most vulnerable communities have the support they need to weather the short- and long-term impacts of the coronavirus outbreak. When faced with a gap in income, families already structurally underemployed face impossible choices between keeping up with essential utilities and keeping food on the table.

We simply could not do this without YOU: donors, volunteers, GG amazing staff and partners. Thank you for constantly inspiring us to make the world a better place. We are grateful “happy” to have you on board! We are grateful “happy” to have you on board! Misaotra betsaka! Merci beaucoup!

With appreciation,

We would like to sincerely thank you for your precious donation to Malagasy families through the COVID 19 Relief: Individual Microgrant Initiative. You are doing more than just filling people stomach. You are showing  that there is good left in people, and that gives us hope. Sometimes, hope is what one needs to try and change their lives.

Our collective donations through the microgrant initiative is providing flexible support that families like Vivace a tour guide can use to pay for whatever expenses that are most urgent for them – like paying for rent and utilities, keeping food on the table, catching up on overdue bills, buying a basic laptop so their children can attend school virtually, or simply launching a new project like "farming" are the most welcome. Eligible hospitality and tourism community and residents in all regions of Madagascar can apply for a range of MGA 50,000 - MGA 100,000 to cover necessary expenses or gaps in income resulting from the economic repercussions of COVID-19. In its global spread the pandemic has brought tragic loss of life and livelihood and has disrupted the functioning of many social life.

Hence, we granted an exception for Vivace to pay the tuition fees of her daughter. Together we are committed to ensuring that our most vulnerable communities have the support they need to weather the short- and long-term impacts of the coronavirus outbreak. When faced with a gap in income, families already structurally underemployed or living paycheck to paycheck face impossible choices between keeping up with rent and essential utilities and keeping food on the table. We simply could not do this without YOU: donors, GG amazing staff and partners. Thank you for constantly inspiring us to make the world a better place.

Dear Amazing Donor,

Early December 2020 Halt Poverty announced the continuation of COVID Relief: Individual Microgrant Initiative. Eligible hospitality and tourism community and residents in all regions of Madagascar can apply for a modest microgrant to cover necessary expenses or gaps in income resulting from the economic repercussions of COVID-19. 

With your contribution, we are committed to ensuring that our most vulnerable communities have the support they need to weather the short-and long-term impacts of the coronavirus outbreak. When faced with a gap in income, families already structurally underemployed or living paycheck to paycheck face impossible choices between keeping up with rent and essential utilities and keeping food on the table.

We are especially grateful for your support on this uniquely challenging year. Halt Poverty COVID Relief Individual Microgrant Initiative provide flexible microgrants that families can use to pay for whatever expenses are most urgent for them. Your gift supports one or more of the following items depending on the needs of each family:

  • paying for rent and utilities
  • keeping food on the table
  • catching up on overdue bills
  • launching a new project like "farming"

In this report, your gift brings modest economic opportunities for decent livelihoods to a family in Ihorombe region which is home to Isalo National Park. Quick fact about the region. High rate of poverty is prevalent (Instat, 2012) in rural areas affects a significant proportion of working age population.

  • Total population: 304,032
  • Total poverty structure: 237,753

The COVID Relief: Individual Microgrant Initiative continues to provide support to hospitality and tourism community struggling to make ends meet as the pandemic and its economic impacts continue. We simply could not do this without YOU: donors, GG amazing staff and partners. Thank you for constantly inspiring us to make the world a better place.

Dear donor,

Please accept our gratitude for your contribution of $82, or 287.000Ariary in local currency to the project #44848 to help tourism community. With your generosity, we have been able to purchase organic and 100% natural essential oils from one of our sites in Vatovavy Fitovinany. Your donation had double impact: (1) supported tourism community as we purchased locally (2) helped treated those little daily ailments of 2020 winter season.

Malagasy winter occurs between May until July. Due to the lockdown, most of our beneficiaries living in urban areas spent about 70% of their time indoors. Most of the time they were breathing were in all types of indoor and outdoor pollution. Making them more vulnerable to catch COVID-19. Though essential oils are not accessible to vulnerable people due to their price, they are considered valuable during the cold months.

We have listed few reasons why household must-have essential oils for a healthy winter especially this year with this unprecedented pandemic:

  • They purify stale indoor air with their uplifting scents to have mood-boosting. They could help clean and deodorize the air
  • They have clarifying qualities that are reputed to reduce the discomforts of congestion and body aches especially for our senior beneficiaries
  • They helped treated those little daily ailments last winter
  • Most of the essential oils used were loaded with strong antiseptic properties. It enabled our beneficiaries to disinfect any surface by removing dirt and stain

We have borrowed few essential oil precautions:

  • Do not apply essential oils directly to the skin. Always use a carrier oil and blend before application
  • If you live in the same space as a pregnant or breastfeeding woman, you should not use any essential oil. It is still unknown how exactly essential oils can affect pregnant women, so it is best to avoid using them during pregnancy to be safe
  • You also should not use essential oils on children, especially those younger than seven years old. Essential oils can be quite powerful, and it is possible that children have not yet developed a resistance to the more intense effects

We reiterate our gratitude for making it possible to create a more resilient workforce. Please see as attached a picture of our capacity building recipients seeing the process about how those essential oils were produced. Stay safe!

Warm regards,

Halt Poverty team
