English use and teaching are being heavily promoted, creating an enhanced need for books and teaching materials at all levels. Feedback Madagascar's distribution of 70,000 books will provide tangible learning opportunities for 1 million readers over the life of the books.


Two forty-foot containers will supply approximately 70,000 books, enough to fill twenty schools or libraries.This project has the potential to impact 1 million Malagasy English learners over the life of the books.
