Comment from the Ambassador
We are proud to have helped 1,000 children go to school by financing their school canteen. In addition, one of their shelters, “Je suis là (I am here)”, was renovated thanks to The Comgest Foundation contribution.
Francine Langlet and Sébastien Layral, respectively co-founder and Chairman of the association, returned from another trip to Madagascar where the situation is as difficult as ever. The local branches that they work with are increasingly in demand by vulnerable local people and helping them remains Fazasoma’s priority. The association’s commitment in the Ambositra region also allows them to help tuberculosis and leprosis patients as well as prisoners. A new gardening project, “le resto des p’tits coeurs (restaurant of the little ones)”, will start on a field lent to the organisation so that children can be introduced to gardening and the importance of a healthy diet. In 2019, Fazasoma will increase fundraising efforts to find new regular donors, because they are aware that without the generosity of Comgest and other donors, they could not pursue activities in Madagascar.
The project to be financed is two-fold: 1) support children’s education in the Ambositra region by financing school canteens which improve – and sometimes determine – school attendance, and 2) conduct important repairs to one of the shelters for the most vulnerable (isolated women, elderly people, students),
Since its creation in 1999, the mission of Fazasoma France has been to support the most vulnerable people in the province of Fianarantsoa by managing shelters/homes, financing school canteens and providing school supplies, as well as developing income-generating activities.
