Community projects in Madagascar

My Madagascar project was amazing. Before I left I was so scared as I had never been away on my own before, but I got a lot of help with my planning from the staff in London and my mum, which was great. I thought the information that I received before I went could have had a few more helpful tips. But once I got on to camp it all made sense. The staff in Mad were great too and my time on the project flew by. I didn't want to leave and can't wait to go on another project, actually I have just booked a project to Tenerife. Veloma

Becoming part of a new Community

Here in Madagascar I've been so privileged to be involved in Frontier's community projects in Hellville. I've spent most of my time in a local primary school giving English lessons and the occasional sports lesson. That we teach English here is such an amazing opportunity for the students to learn direct from native speakers, and it's literally Frontier that single-handedly provides this. School sports lessons here tend to be a low priority and are desperately in need of a little extra energy and enthusiasm, which it has been my pleasure to help to provide! Outside of school, Frontier runs a course of English lessons at a local 'youth club', for students of really any age to genuinely improve their life-prospects by improving their English. One of my favourite experiences here, though, has been visiting a local orphanage where a large number of the children are very sadly suffering from disabilities. We go there whenever we get a chance to provide fun and stimulating play opportunities to these extremely cute and extremely deserving children. Basically, Frontier community projects searches out the areas of need here in Hellville and the surrounding area and tries to help fill those gaps with young and enthusiastic volunteers who are so welcomed and appreciated by the local community for all that they give. Everyone here is so happy to see a blue t-shirt coming their way, and we're proud to wear them. Offering my time to the people here has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life.
