In the western world we take it for granted having access to clean water, food and education. These are the essential basics which allow us to create the future we desire.
The Malagasy are one of the poorest people on earth, more than 70 percent of them are living on less than a dollar a day. Nearly half of Madagascar’s children under five years of age are malnourished.
Children leaving school just to stay alive is an increasing problem in Madagascar. An estimated two million children are working instead of receiving an education. Child labor is illegal in Madagascar but severe poverty makes it a survival necessity.
Your support for these people will help to give them the opportunity what everyone deserves, the ability to create a better future.
The Foreign Challenge takes video blogging to the next level by raising awareness of challenges what ordinary Malagasy people are facing today and how we can all come together to extend a helping hand and help make a difference in the lives of Malagasy children in need.
On the 4th of December 2016 I will embark on an unsupported motorcycle ride around Madagascar. Within 34 days I will cover approximately 5000 km in Western and Southern Madagascar. I will show Madagascar in its purest form by visiting some of the most remote areas of the island!
I have set up a fund raising link for the charity organisation called “Money for Madagascar”.
Money for Madagascar is a charity organisation established in 1986 which helps and supports many destitute children, vulnerable women and girls, young people with disabilities and families escaping poverty.
Give the children the chance to shape their own future, children are the future and now is the time to make a difference in their lives.
Your contribution, no matter how large or small will help children to have the education that they need to help them shape a better future for themselves, so let’s put a smile on these kids faces!
Here are some samples of how much of an impact your donation will have
$10 provides one family with the technical support and materials they need to sustain in order to increase their rice production and grow vegetables and fruit trees.
$20 will help set up a family in fish farming or small scale livestock keeping.
$60 will help establish and maintain irrigation systems for a community.
$200 will provide a well pump to a remote village, ensuring their access to clean drinking water and improving the health of the community.
