Their approach is one of partnership with local communities as we work to alleviate poverty and support environmental conservation. Their integrated sustainable development initiatives support some of the world's most vulnerable people in threatened and irreplaceable environments.
All of their projects are sensitively built around what are directly expressed to be the most pressing needs of marginalised communities. They have over 12 years of project experience in south east Madagascar and during this time have developed strong working relationships with the local population, maximising their participation in all stages of project development, design, planning, implementation, monitoring and evaluation. Azafady is a recognised regional specialist in capacity building at the community level (empowerment, information, education and training, advocacy) and it is estimated that over 100,000 people have benefited from our projects over the last decade.
Azafady has a number of unique and challenging volunteer placements in Madagascar. Whether your passion is sustainable community development or vital conservation work, Azafady can offer you an unforgettable experience.
Whichever programme you choose you will be benefiting from Azafady's extensive experience in Madagascar with each scheme led by an award-winning team of project coordinators. No particular skills are required to volunteer with us and training is given locally but if you do have particular experience in areas relevant to your programme then this will enhance your contribution.
Volunteering with them could help you choose a new direction in life or develop a career path you may already be on. It might be both a personal highlight and a practical stepping stone in a gap year or, for anyone at any time, a great way to go abroad for much more than just a holiday.
