Help improve the quality of education in Madagascar

Technical and vocational training in Madagascar does not receive much in the way of financial support. As a result only about a quarter of pupils found places in public schools in 2013. Many young people go to the city in search of work, but end up on the street. There they simply try to survive and fall prey to prostitution, drugs and criminality. Thanks to this project 1,500 youngsters can receive training every year in woodwork or metalwork, auto mechanics, electrical engineering and electronics, construction and bricklaying, farming, cutting and sewing, restaurant and bakery skills, secretarial skills, bookkeeping, beauty therapy and hairdressing, and ICT.
