“Poverty won’t allow him to lift up his head, dignity won’t allow him to bow it down.”
A Malagasy proverb
“La pauvreté ne lui permettra pas de lever la tête, la dignité ne lui permettra pas de s’incliner.”
Un proverbe malgache
“Tsy mamela azy hitraka ny fahantrana, fa ny hasina kosa tsy mamela azy hitanondrika.”
We believe that FAMILY is the best, God-given foundation for a child’s life. So that’s where we start. We start with THEIR family. We don’t believe any child should be separated from their birth family simply because of financial difficulty. Sometimes, all it takes is a little support in order for a family to stay together. FAMadagascar can often provide simple solutions such as monthly rice provision, help with school fees, employment training, micro-loans or small business start ups; like Knief’s chicken farming business (opposite).
