Providing access to education for children in villages in the far south of Madagascar is the mission of ABC Domino, a French association created in 2004.
Composed only by volunteers, the association has built and managed for fifteen years six public primary schools as well as two middle schools and a high school. 3,200 students are taught and managed by a team of 90 salaried Malagasy teachers.
For the six primary schools, only four currently have a school canteen, whose the providing is managed by WFP.
Supported project: construction of two school canteens for the two primary schools in Beheloka and Andranotohoky, in the Tulear region of Madagascar.
The objective is to provide a healthy and balanced daily meal for each of the 550 children in these two schools.
The Foundation’s support for this project is enabling the construction of two 130 m2 canteens each, comprising an eating area, a kitchen and a secure storage room. Particular attention will be paid to the materials used to cope with the cyclones in the region.
The project also includes the local manufacture of furniture necessary for the running of the canteen as well as the supply of kitchen equipment.
The preparation and distribution of meals is planned by volunteer mothers who will also oversee the maintenance of the premises.
