Madagaskar Vision e.V. (NGO):
School-Sponsoring-Network Germany-Madagascar supporting 20+ schools and
more than 6000 pupils a year.
What began in 1991 with one school has become a strong
network of german individuals and institutions supporting schools in
Meanwhile more than 6000 pupils are supported in their educational
training through monthly contributions to their school ranging from
25-50 Euros. These amounts are transferred 1-2 times a year by
Madagaskar Vision staff and are aimed to support existing schools in
what is not only expected by the ambitious Madagascar Action Plan by the
Malagasy Government: Creating a successful and barrier-free primary
education systems by supporting schools with money to buy and distribute
free school-material to their pupils.
Many pupils are still excluded from primary education because their
families cannot afford school-material like pens or paper to participate
in class. Like in other parts of the world as well, many schools in
Madagascar are not satisfyingly funded to provide good teaching
Madagaskar Vision's approach is to support schools - with focus in the
region of Brickaville - with extra-money to their budgets to enhance
quality and allow more children to participate in school. The
extra-money is allocated through a local school-comittee which is set up
at every school. It decides about how the money is invested into the
school. The school-committee is accountable to the local people and the
Figures show that supported schools sometimes double their numbers of
pupils (compared to situation before support started). In 2001/ 2002 CEG
Brickaville for instance counted 578 pupils. In 2004/ 2005 the same
school had risen to 1036 pupils. EPP Ranomainty rose from 379 in
2000/2001 to 582 pupils in 2003/2004.
Madagaskar Vision would like to say thank you to all donors and people
that support the network.
