TASC joint venture in Vohipeno well on track
One of Adsum's newest partners, UK and Irish charity TASC Madagascar, have just returned from a field visit to our first major project with them in Vohipeno, eastern Madagascar.
Initially working with the charity on a reforestation program in the area, Adsum have taken on the biggest project yet in this new and growing partnership with TASC. The Maromby school project will renovate existing classrooms as well as building a new classroom block for the 350+ pupils who attend.
We are also delighted that clean and safe water will also be brought to the community in conjunction with another of our longstanding partners, Feedback Madagascar, and hope to build on this collaborative response with our work in the area.
TASC focus their efforts on the Foyer de Tanjomoha, through Pere Emeric, which is situated outside Vohipeno in eastern Madagascar. Foyer de Tanjomoha serves children and adults with disabilities, orphans, vulnerable youth, and impoverished ill people by operating two schools, three vocational training programs, a sustainable agriculture program, an outpatient and residential medical clinic, and a home for children. It also periodically provides relief measures for victims of cyclones, including the replanting of farms and plantations, and the reconstruction of homes, roads, and bridges. The Foyer de Tanjomoha focuses its services on several impoverished villages located 2-15 kilometers outside Vohipeno.
