Our students range in age from 12 to 19 years. As of January 2010, the school had 216 students, down from a high of 302 students in September 2008. Enrollment continues to fall as the global economic crisis eliminates jobs in Madagascar and parents can no longer afford to pay school fees. To help the school survive despite declining revenues, we’ve launched a fundraising campaign to raise the money to construct our own school building, thus eliminating the major expense of rent. Get involved in our campaign!
