Still day 6 of our Madagascar trip:

During the late morning we visited the catholic school. The nuns were happy to welcome us. We had a look at the building and the site belonging to the school. This was important for David, as he will give lessons here in the following weeks. We set up a timetable with the nuns for David. Following this the nuns invited us for a wonderful meal, which as every year was delicious. To celebrate our visit they even made a banana cake for us :-)

Here are some pictures of our visit:

Day 6 of our Madagascar trip:

After a day of regeneration our timetable was full again:

In the morning, we visited the house where our support project for women is located. The women learn to weave bags and hats. We try to sell these, to partially autofinance this Project.

Some of these bags were already brought to spain at our last journey. We sold them at the International Festival in Javea in June.

Take a look at these pictures of the making of these bags…

Day 4 of our Madagascar trip:

We were at the orphanage today, visiting ”our” kids.  Clothes and toys were distributed among everyone. The children were excited about all the new things. We also took a look at the house. Some points had already been improved/refrubished with the help of donations from La Vision. Other aspects still have an urgent need for action.

For example the dorm rooms: the mattresses in the childrens’ beds have already been partially  exchanged. During inspection, we noticed that there are still about five to six dirty and broken mattresses. We will buy new mattresses for these beds shortly and exchange them at the next visit.

Here are some pictures of the distribution of clothes and toys…

Flashback: Zumbathon in Herschbach

Zumba-Parta (27) Zumba-Parta (28)

Our Charity Zumbathon has been a great success! We hoped for 40-50 people and were amazed by the amount of people who came. Besides the seven Zumba-Intructors, who came free of charge, we had a total of 85 participants who danced for Madagascar. We also had visitors who watched while enjoying a beer or one of our home-made cocktails. It was a great atmosphere and many people danced right till the end.
