Changing Children's Lives

Situated off the east coast of Africa and famous for its unique flora and fauna, Madagascar is also one of the poorest countries in the world. Throughout Madagascar, children experience unimaginable hardship on a daily basis. Whether orphaned, abandoned, mistreated or forced into work, thousands endure crushing poverty with little or no hope of a different life.

But lives can change.

Akany Avoko provides a home, an education and a healthy life for more than 120 of Madagascar’s most deserving but neglected youth. Our mission is to protect the rights of children and young people and provide a refuge for those who have been forgotten by society. While living and learning in Akany Avoko’s nurturing environment, the children are able to live their lives to their fullest potential: smarter, healthier, happier.

Their lives changed.
