We are a development and conservation charity working with poor communities in Madagascar to improve health, education and livelihood opportunities through colloborative projects.
Feedback Madagascar works in hard to reach rural areas helping the poorest communities of Madagascar. We address the short and long term threats to people and conservation efforts by recognising the interrelationship between: health, education and livelihoods and the effective, sustainable stewardship of the natural environment.
By working with our local partner Ny Tanintsika (meaning ‘Our land/Our earth’ in Malagasy) and including communities at all stages of our programme design and implementation, we ensure local accountability and sustainability for all our projects.
We have worked in the rainforest corridor in the south-central region of Madagascar since 1993 and we have helped thousands of Malagasy families by overseeing and promoting: healthcare, education, income generating activities and improving agricultural techniques, in addition to reforesting thousands of hectares of land and preserving many endangered species.
Feedback Madagascar aims to:
- To improve the health of rural communities through projects to improve: reproductive health, family planning, malaria prevention, water, sanitation & hygiene and health infrastructure.
- To carry out projects protecting and delivering livelihoods in areas of: reforestation, cultivating endangered yet valuable species, and promoting the use of solar electricity.
- To improve the incomes of many families in the rainforest corridor by promoting income generating techniques particularly focusing on silk and basketry weaving which have been recently revitalized.
- Delivering projects which help Madagascar’s youth have a good quality education through programmes such as: sponsoring teachers, school canteen initiatives and building infrastructure.
- To promote the rights of communities in the Fianarantsoa district of Madagascar by promoting women’s independence and human dignity through improved living conditions.
