In 2003, Mocoh has financed the building of a primary school referred to as “Lilas”, in Antananarivo Madagascar. This school has 110 students from 3 to 13 years old, split in 50 boys and 60 girls. The school accommodates children from kindergarten to college.
This school ensures that children from this community in Antananarivo are ensured access to education.
We have been in constant contact with the school over the years and we have watched it grow. This growth has served the community and this school has allowed the children to achieve their full potential.
We have recently been approached by the school’s director, seeking for financial support to keep the school in service. Their reason is that the government has hiked the minimum salary by an additional 30%. . The parents of the children are not able to pay an additional fee and neither does the school have any extra funds to pay this rise in teacher’s salary.
Mocoh has always wished to contribute in the community where we are present and whilst there is so much that is needed in Africa, we give where we feel that our dollars results in the best outcome for the school.. We feel that the founder of the school and the teachers are totally committed to the welfare of the children and thus we have approved a monthly payment to the administration to cover the increase in salary for the teachers.
