Social and Environmental Projects
in Madagascar


The emergency relief programme aims to assist communities living in the deep-south of Madagascar who face extreme drought, food insecurity and environmental challenges. The project employs thousands of villagers on a day wage using a "money for food for work" scheme, and mobilises them to stabilise dunes, excavate water basins and plant trees. The project enables people to buy food during the annual hunger gap whilst also bringing long term benefits for land management, agriculture, and animal husbandry.
