„I love those who can smile in trouble, who can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by reflection.”
Akany Avoko Faravohitra located in capital of Madagascar, Antananarivo is a shelter for 37 girls in age 5-18 and children some of them. The girls are placed by the judges at the juvenile court for their own safety. Each of them has a terrible story in its biography. Some of them were abandoned by parents due to difficult financial situation, some other had to run away due to sexual abuse. There are girls taken from the streets and other, pregnant at a very early age. All these tragedies sound like stories from the poignant movie. Unfortunately, this time we talk about the real dramas of the young girls who have never tasted a happy childhood.
Education in Madagascar is not required by the law. One can only attend a lesson, if the school fee is submitted. The probability that a child from a family living in poverty will get any education is significantly low. This family struggles to feed all the members. Education is a luxury. This is a reason why some of these girls can’t write or read.
Akany Avoko Faravohitra sends most of the girls to school so they can get a professional occupation and become independent. Only this way these young people can enter the society again. Having equal chances, they can forget about the past and create their own, better future. On a top of that, Akany Avoko Faravohitra has a training program in place for these girls who cannot attend the school. The program aims to give them handcraft skills (embroidering, hairdressing, sawing, cookery, class, patchwork, basket-making and others). We would love to support this organization and give a hope to the girls by opening them a window for a future.
Schelter for one person in Akany Avoko Faravohitra costs 185 Polish Zlotych. This amount covers expenditure for alimentation, accommodation, clothes and education for a period of one month.
We would like to encourage you to support us by donation of any amount or by joining our Give A Future program.
