JHA Fund, a non-profit NGO based in Antalaha, Madagascar, equipping youth for a future of possibilities by addressing barriers to education.

JHA FUND‘s objectives are:

  • to create revenue-generating environmental projects by promoting community and school participation together with GIZ
  • to open doorways to basic education and health care at the C.A.L.A. leprosy villages and sponsoring children to go to school, together with Macolline Botanical Park
  • to promote access to employment opportunities, global engagement and higher schooling by teaching English as a foreign language to keen and motivated young adults

A friend, importer of Madagascar’s famous vanilla Aust & Hachmann Canada, had often talked about Antalaha and its lack of medical support, education and deforestation problems.

He explained his many humanitarian and development ventures, one being the company’s involvement in sustaining the leprosy community schools in the vanilla region of Madagascar. Two villages are run by the NGO C.A.L.A., an alliance that supports leprosy survivors and their families, helping to settle, have access to medical aid, a home, support and food. I was intrigued by the beauty of the land and the warmth of the people as he described the country.
