Future Projects

Should the school receive more money than needed for our new school building campaign, those funds would go to the following projects:

  • Scholarships for students who can not afford to pay the school fees
  • Building up the school library
  • Extracurricular activities, including courses in Kabary Malagasy (the traditional Malagasy speech style used for special occasions) and Malagasy handicrafts, both of which are skills that could bring income to students later in life.
  • Opening the library and language courses to all the children of Ivato, regardless of which school they attend.
