Covid - 19
The world is in the grip of a global pandemic and daily life in Ireland, the UK and Madagascar has changed for now, and perhaps forever, in the face of Covid-19.
While our partners in Madagascar are taking stock of the situation we are reminded of the importance of many of our existing projects and programmes that we have been working together with them on over the last decade, and how these are going to be the foundation and focus of the work going forward.
Clean and safe water will be more important than ever, and with education around good hygiene vital now both at home and in Madagascar, schools will be the ideal place to disseminate life saving information for the children and their communities at large.
During the coming weeks and months Adsum will continue to support both these rural communities and our partners as best we can whilst respecting government and health guidelines. We will continue to install more safe water points in 2020, adding to the 149 we have put in place to date and continue to provide training in handwashing and good hygiene in our schools when the full terms recommence. The 300+ trainers who deliver our adult literacy project in Southern Madagascar will be ideally placed to use their use their platforms to explain and demonstrate good practice amongst their students.
Join us in building up resilience in communities in one of the poorest parts of the developing world
