Overview

Join the Community Development Volunteering Program in Madagascar with Volunteering Solutions and contribute effectively towards making lives better for the people living in Nosy Komba. Being a developing island nation, there are several issues that people have to face in their daily lives. Our main aim would be to improve the lives and living conditions of the people, by maintaining existing community infrastructures and building much needed new facilities.

Among the various issues that are faced, running water and sanitation issues are among the most crucial ones. These problems are addressed by the team of volunteers as well as awareness is spread among the students about the environment.

Apart from that, transportation is another major issue. The absence of roads and motorized vehicles on Nosy Komba means that the local inhabitants face the daily challenge of crossing near impassable terrain to reach other nearby villages. Rainy season makes many of these routes even more difficult to negotiate. We assist communities by identifying these areas and building pathways and bridges to make these precarious routes easier to navigate. It also helps tourists to reach these interior places with are hidden gems of the island, thus, contributing towards the flourish of tourism.

Volunteers assist not only with the physical labor required to complete the projects but also with initiating additional fundraising campaigns. These fundraising efforts are invaluable, without which we would not be able to achieve our goals. A seemingly small contribution can make a noteworthy difference in the lives of the people living here.
