To come and visit us in Antsirabe, Menja (yellow T-shirt) spent 7 hours in a bush-taxi; the next day he left in the same way to meet up with Soavina. Menja wants to be a priest, and he needs our support to complete his studies so he can get his diploma.

While I give French lessons to the young women spending time in the community, Jacques goes to the prison to give courses to the prisoners, so that they can have a trade when they are released. Eleven prisoners will receive their diploma, in the presence of an Italian sister, who lives full time with the prisoners.


To earn 200 Ariary (≅ 45 centimes d’€) this man has his picture taken with his kittens.
