We did not want simply to go there, zip through the landscape, and give back only our smiles to thank the locals.
Back last year, with my wife, we spotted a bush orphanage in Ste-Marie Island. Michelle and her team also built a bush hospital and a school. http://www.zazakely.org/orphelinat.html
Closer to the start of our trip, I heard about an association who built a school and needed equipment for the pupils. We contacted them. Frederic and Veronique from the association told us what they need http://www.madilo.org/index.php/les-enfants-de-madilo
As the end we collected, helped by members of our MC-club and work colleagues, 1720€ and 120 school bags.
So we headed to Madagascar with 24kg of school bags.
