HOW TO HELP

  PROJECT TAMPINA

Initial situation
Tampina is a small village situated on the East coast of Madagascar, where lowland rainforests are hosting a huge variety of wildlife and endemic flora. However, since tavy (the Malagasy term for 'slash and burn') cultivation is very common, large areas have already been degraded and destroyed causing an impoverishment in biodiversity.
In 2005 116 families lived in Tampina with a total 162 scholars but only one school building and only one teacher.

Goal and Procedure
The aim of the project was to give all the children the possibility to attend a primary school education.
In collaboration with the Jane Goodall Institute of Switzerland the old school building was reconditioned and furnished, a second building has been buildt at the beginning of 2007 and was inaugurated in May. Finally a water pump was installed on the school ground.
