HOW TO HELP
||PROJECT ALAOTRA - MODULE EDUCATION
Education is one of the most important requisites for a better living standard as well as for sustainable conservation. MHRN therefore implements environmental education in the public primary schools (EPP) of the region of Alaotra in conjunction with our partners worldwide including the Muskoka Wildlife Centre. The goal is to raise public sensitivity and appreciation for the importance of an intact lake and preserved marshes.
The basis of this education program is a comic book developed by MHRN and realized by the Malagasy artist Ramafa. It is called „AROVY FA HARENA“ which means „Protect/preserve because it is richeness". The nine episodes tell the adventures of the village boy Fidy, the Bandro Malala and their friends.
Each episode addresses a specific conservation issue of the local ecoysytem and serves as a starting point for further actvities on the subject. The teachers are trained, informed in detail and supplied with supportive educational material by MHRN.
In 2006 MHRN has started to print and distribute copies of the comic and will gradually do so in the forthcoming years for all primary schools of the Alaotra region.
