AIC Madagascar: Empowerment through education – a young girl receives her diploma

A Malagasy orphan, formerly welcomed at an AIC centre, has received the highest honors for her Master thesis. A wonderful example of resilience and empowerment through education!

In 1989, the young Georgina was an orphan and her future wasn’t looking bright. But that year, her life changed when the AIC volunteers welcomed her at the Saint Louise Centre in Manakara, Madagascar. At this Centre, Georgina had the opportunity, like many other children living in difficult situations, to receive meals and academic support.

Indeed, the AIC volunteers are convinced that educating a child promotes change in their community.

And Georgina has just proved beyond all doubt that they are right. This year she presented her dissertation, in French, on the theme of early pregnancy. She succeeded brilliantly and made her ‘adopted mothers’, the AIC volunteers, very proud. From now on, as midwife, she will contribute to the development of her community through her skills.

Our deepest gratitude goes to the ‘Friends of Madagascar’ in Germany who have been supporting this fantastic project with generosity for many years.
