Volunteer Madagascar


Page I Page II


Madagascar should be an island paradise ~ but it isn't. Today it is ranked in 151st place out of 186 countries and territories in 2013 in terms of life expectancy, literacy, access to knowledge and the living standards and a horrifying half of all children under the age of five will die of diarrhoea.

In fact, despite being surrounded by it, safe and secure water is a real problem in Madagascar with just 18% of its schools having access to it and only 30% having toilets.

HIV/AIDS is also rampant with five children being born every day in Madagascar with the virus and 910,000 orphans live in the country, one out of every ten children. Nearly 70% of Madagascar's population lives below the poverty with poverty rising to 85% in rural areas, which is home to 80% of the country's 20 million population.

As such volunteer work programs in Madagascar focus on working with orphans and child headed families, education and developing a sustainable water supply and safe latrines to replace communal ones (see above) that lead to children and adults having prolonged periods of sickness. Other volunteer projects include conservation work to help kick start the tourist industry that has been decimated since sanctions were imposed on the country following the 2009 coup. If you run or know of a volunteer work project in Madagascar let us know by contacting here. We look forward to hearing from you!
