Hope in a plastic bottle

The initiative, ingenuity and energy of the Malagasy people is at the heart of all that Money for Madagascar does. Even after decades supporting projects across Madagascar our trustees never cease to be amazed by the resourcefulness of our partners and their communities. On a recent visit to Toamasina on the east coast of Madagascar, our Coordinator Theresa Haine witnessed first-hand the results of an innovative Money for Madagascar sponsored training programme aimed at both recycling waste and generating much-needed income for local people.

The road less travelled

Ever year one of Money for Madagascar's trustees visits the Red Island to monitor the progress of the projects that we support. As much of the work that we fund takes place in isolated rural communities such journeys are rarely without incident.
