a difficult social reality hidden behind beauty

Despite the beauty of its landscapes, Madagascar remains one of the poorest countries on the planet. The political crisis which started in 2009 has stopped the economic development of the country. Social services such as education are not guaranteed. Children and the young people from poorer backgrounds are the most affected. ASED has been active on the island since 1994.

 

ASED in Madagascar

ASED’s initial projects enabled children to have access to school by providing them with school equipment and offering them meals at school.

Later, access to pre-school became a priority: the most deprived children, often roaming in the streets on their own since early childhood, experience great difficulties in integrating the school system.

ASED also helps adolescents who are totally disconnected from society and school. These young people have no qualifications and no perspectives, thus they fall into idleness and extreme poverty. « Second chance » schools provide them with the basic knowledge to develop local economic activities which in turn contribute to a local sustainable development.
