TONGASOA! BIENVENUE! WELCOME!
My time volunteering in Africa led me to start up the JHA FUND, a non-profit NGO based in Antalaha, Madagascar, equipping youth for a future of possibilities by addressing barriers to education.
JHA FUND‘s objectives are:
- to create revenue-generating environmental projects by promoting community participation with reforestation, together with Macolline Botanical Park
- to open doorways to basic education and health care at the C.A.L.A. leprosy villages and sponsoring children to go to school
- to promote access to employment opportunities, global engagement and higher schooling by teaching English as a foreign language to keen and motivated young adults
He explained his many humanitarian and development ventures, one being the company’s involvement in sustaining the leprosy community schools in the vanilla region of Madagascar. Two villages are run by the NGO C.A.L.A., an alliance that supports leprosy survivors and their families, helping to settle, have access to medical aid, a home, support and food. I was intrigued by the beauty of the land and the warmth of the people as he described the country.
From the moment I arrived in 2013, I was surrounded by wonderful locals.
Madagascar is one of the most beautiful places on our planet filled with rare and unique biodiversity.
It is also a nation with one of the highest rates of deforestation.
A magnificent country boasting incredible flora and fauna as well as warm inviting locals, full of warmth and smiles, Madagascar is among one of the poorest populations in the world, where the threat and reality of leprosy still exists.
My work in Antalaha depends on those who believe in my vision and mission. Your contribution, whatever the amount will make a difference.
Anything is considered generous in our world, so I encourage you to participate. Please DONATE here. Thank you for your interest and the people of Antalaha are always thankful.
There are many people who are eager to learn and improve their country’s situation, they just need opportunities. If you can help me to help them, then we’re all making a difference together.
My volunteer activities are carried out without regard for race, religion or political affiliation.
