Access to education, as well as water & sanitation issues, are some of the many challenges that Madagascar must face, particularly in rural areas. Association France-Madagascar, which has been active in various isolated villages on the north side of the island since 2006, is attempting to develop solutions to these problems. It has already built 4 elementary schools and 1 well.
Association France Madagascar has built a sanitation facility in an elementary school in Mahasoa, on the northeast side of the island. The facility will provide clean sanitary conditions for the school's 240 students and 5 teachers, thereby preventing the spread of diseases caused by fecal contamination. These diseases are one of the main causes of morbidity and mortality in Madagascar.
The Foundation has granted an endowment to build a sanitation facility comprised of 3 bathrooms and a water supply point.
