Firstly, why do I have a heart for Madagascar.  I lived there for a year after college and came to know that Malagasy people are full of love despite being one of the poorest countries in the world.

About 3 or 4 years ago a wonderful lady called Ninah gathered the poor little children together in her area to teach them English. In March Ninah restarted. The local washer women gathered the kids so that Ninah could teach them, some who have never been to school. More and more have come to learn. Currently, Ninah teaches in a fabric shelter with a few planks for benches and we would like to help her provide a single classroom, to begin with, so that the children can be safe and learn in a positive environment. Ninah has said she has peace despite the hardship but I believe we can do more to provide for those in her community. 

"The kids are so sweet and they really like to come and learn" Ninah

Ninah and I share heart for the wider community and we trust the shelter will be utilised also for the Orphans and Widows in the area. 

I have witness to Ninahs heart having taught beside her for many months. We have known each other now for over ten years and share a love for the people in Madagascar.
