Help us buy a land and a house to keep our school open for the poor kids of our local community
My sister and I have a school where we try to offer good education to poor kids of our neighborhood. Now, the owner of the place that we rent wants us to leave. This has happened already twice since 2013. This time we may have to close the school unless we buy a land and a house. But we cannot afford them. That is why we call on you to assist us. Please, help us buy a land and a house so we can keep the school open for the poor kids of our local community. Thank you so much for your support.
“Les Roitelets” is a school based in Antananarivo, Madagascar, in a district named Analamahitsy. Created in 1995, it has now a record of more than 1,400 schoolchildren.
“My mother said that educating is like building a house. You need to make sure the base is strong enough for the walls raised to be strong as well. It is our motto.” The school wants to give access to good education to everyone; especially children from low-income households.
Now, the existence of the school is endangered. The landlord wants us to leave. We have tried to look for another place to rent without success. Meanwhile, we have found a place for sale. We now realize that this is the only solution we have. Unfortunately, we cannot afford it.
The school’s survival is very important for the neighborhood. Besides, we cannot give up on our late mother’s dream and good work.

A teacher who is able to share knowledge and to help the children to achieve the best they can do: this is her ideal image of what any teacher should be.
