Sekoly: Mandiso and Maintso

Sekoly Mandiso

Without a designated building for secondary school students, teachers and students of Mandiso Lower Secondary School utilise the dilapidated church and town hall as makeshift classrooms. Due to a lack of sanitation facilities on school grounds, students are forced to share latrines with the community, which are often full, leading to increased rates of open defecation. In February, Cyclone Batsirai and Cyclone Emnati caused severe disruptions to operations, resulting in the immediate evacuation of SEED’s construction team from the field. Cyclone Emnati caused damage to one of the walls under construction at Mandiso and also caused a tree to fall where the latrine blocks were meant to be built. Fortunately, the SEED team were able to quickly rebuild this damaged wall, as well as the remaining walls on the school building. The team also cleared the latrine block site, cutting and removing the fallen tree, giving the wood back to the community for use.

Sekoly Maintso

Within the Sekoly Programme, the production and transportation of building materials to sites produces carbon dioxide emissions that contribute negatively to climate change; disproportionately impacting communities such as Mandiso. Project Sekoly: Maintso (Green School in Malagasy) seeks to offset the carbon footprint of the Sekoly Programme. The emissions produced during the construction of Mandiso School are calculated at 44,640 kgCO2e. In March, SEED planted 350 Acacia mangium trees to offset the emissions over a period of 10 years. An additional 350 trees have been planted in a resource use plantation, providing the community with a sustainable wood resource. Alongside this, 100 fruit trees – including papaya, mango, and soursop – are being planted between the plantations and around Mandiso Lower Secondary School. These fruit trees will provide a sustainable source of nutrition for the school students as well as the wider community.
