  9. 9. Food! •  Drought  is  recurrent  in  the  south  of  Madagascar.  The  last  harvest  was   severely  compromised  by  the  lack  of  rain,  and  consequently,  so  was  the   capacity  of  households  to  feed  their  children.   •  By  the  end  of  2008,  almost  400,000  people  were  living  in  food-­‐insecure   districts  across  Madagascar.  The  situa1on  has  only  worsened  since.  Up  to   a  quarter-­‐million  children  are  now  reportedly  at  risk  of  disease  and   malnutri1on.   •  A  recent  nutri1on  survey  supported  by  UNICEF  in  five  districts  shows  that   global  acute  malnutri1on  rates  in  children  under  the  age  of  five  have   reached  serious  levels.  Addi1onal  surveys  are  planned  in  two  addi1onal   drought-­‐affected  regions.   •  According  to  the  World  Health  Organisa1on  (WHO),  42%  of  Malagasy   children  under  five  are  underfed,  while  acute  malnutri1on  affects  9%  of   young  children.  MadagasiCARE : Non-profit Organization – www.madagasicare.org info@madagasicare.org
  10. 10. Education! "A child who does not go to school, it’s a whole people that does not grow”! Cheikh Anta Diop! •  It  is  necessary  that  young  people  are  able  to  make  the  right   decisions,  taking  into  account  their  health,  their  educa1on,  but  also   their  right.   •  Today,  worldwide,  more  than  8/10  children  are  enrolled  in  school.   It  is  a  great  progress  but  we  must  find  a  way  for  all  children  to   a^end  school.   •  Did  you  know  that  the  majority  of  children  in  Madagascar  5  to  14   years  old  work  and  a  fiYh  of  adults  can  not  read  or  write?   •  It  is  essen1al  to  go  to  school  if  we  want  to  find  a  job  later.   •  For  everyone,  knowledge  is  the  most  effec1ve  tool  to  transform  the   world.  MadagasiCARE : Non-profit Organization – www.madagasicare.org info@madagasicare.org
