If your plan is for one year plant rice. If your plan is for ten years plant trees. If your plan is for one hundred years educate children.” Confucius
The percentage allocated to the sector of education in the national budget has decreased from 19.7% in 2009 to 16.0% in 2012. UNICEF estimates that 1.5 million children are now out school, about 1 in 4 children.
ASISTEN Travel is partnering with VONY, a small local and dynamic non-profit organization which aim is to give the will and opportunity to children to not drop out of school.
In 2014, VONY did support to 450 kids in two schools in Manjaka ( suburb of Antananarivo ) and Morondava. Support was given under the form of distribution of school kits, extra curriculum activities and renovation work of the schools.
ASISTEN Travel is committed to donate 10 USD per trip booked by our customers to VONY. You can also provide extra support by donating school kits or purchasing postcards designed by the kids from Manjaka.
