The Family International Madagascar

of projects in Madagascar

Madagascar has a population of 20 million, 80 percent of the population live below the poverty line (earning less than 2€ a day).

Members of the Family International have been active in Madagascar for 15 years, working to alleviate material and spiritual suffering in one of the world’s poorest countries. Our work is focused on community and charitable programs to support youth and children, and Christian outreach.

Members have undertaken a variety of charitable activities, including operating a small dispensary, building houses for widows and families facing poverty, food and clothing distribution, providing schools with roofing and school benches, and teaching French and English to underprivileged children. Recent efforts have focused on improving the quality of life of orphans, destitute children, and juvenile prisoners.
