Since 1995, MAP has been supporting the projects of Father Pedro Pablo Opeka, who dedicates his life to improving the living conditions of Malagasy children and adults, encouraging them to get involved and build their future to get out of the hell of Antananarivo’s garbage dumps. Several major projects have been financed by MAP, such as the construction of the Rainier III elementary school in 1997, the Prince Albert II College, the Lycée Grimaldi, the Cantine du Rocher, the Princess Grace clinic, and more than 106 houses. Other vocational training projects in various fields have also followed in order to promote the professional integration of the villagers.
In 2017, the construction of an elementary school in Akamasoa with 11 classrooms on 6 levels for 400 students was finalized, with retaining wall and a large playground, in the names of LL.AA.SS. Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella of Monaco. Utwo-storey maternity ward with 4 hospitalization rooms, 2 delivery rooms, a midwife’s office, a waiting room, a living room, toilets and showers and a veranda, bearing the name of H.S.H. Princess Charlene of Monaco, has also been built. The inauguration was attended by H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco and a delegation from the MAP Board of Directors. These different buildings form today the educational complex of Akamasoa, and welcome thousands of students each year. The city of Akamasoa now has more than 30,000 inhabitants and the needs are constantly growing.
Improve learning conditions and enable 450 new students to attend high school.
