School Roof Initiative

Funding for proper housing and schools is a significant issue in Madagascar, especially in rural areas. A school in the Tsaranoro Valley in the central highlands of Madagascar was in need of a great deal of repair since its roof was a simple thatched one, made of straw and wood, and it leaked when it rained so that the children were unable to attend school in the rainy season. ICO was able to raise the money to replace this roof with a metal one and donate other funds that could go towards school supplies. The School Roof Project was an incredible success and it managed not only to replace the roof on the school but also to fill it with a ton of school supplies (notebooks, pens, chalk, maps etc.) and to outfit each of the children with a brand new shirt for attending class. The people of the village were ecstatic and so appreciative and send their warmest wishes back to all who helped out in making this project happen.
