In Madagascar, we are now reaching over 9,000 vulnerable children in prison and across 68 schools with daily meals through our partners, who provide education and vocational training. 

The conditions in prisons in Madagascar are described as appalling and there is no consistent provision of food, so this programme is supporting some of the country’s most vulnerable young people with vital nourishment and a chance to learn. 

An Argyll-based organisation, Feedback Madagascar, is working with Mary’s Meals in Madagascar, providing local knowledge and support as we expand our school feeding programme into Madagascar.

Our work

We work in four prisons – Diego and Joffreville in the Antsiranana region, and Antanimora and Mandrosoa in Antananarivo – serving daily meals to children in their place of education.

We work in 68 schools in three rural areas – Amoron’i Mania, Haute Matsiatra and Vatovavy-Fitovinany.
