The Princess Charlene of Monaco Foundation is partnering with the Consulate of Monaco in Madagascar to empower Malagasy children and help them to practice sport in schools.
The Foundation, alongside other partners (La Société Saint-Vincent de Paul de Monaco, the Immaculée Conception Conference, SOMADIS SA and Canal+ Madagascar) participates in the purchase and delivery of sports materials and equipment for 70 public schools within the DRENs (Regional Directorate of National Education) of Analamanga, Bongolava and Itasy.
With this logistical and material support, schools can take part in inter-school tournaments organized by their respective School Districts. Beyond the figures, the results are positive: thanks to the regular practice of sport, students are more fulfilled and develop team spirit and generosity.
In Madagascar, schools are a privileged setting for the practice of sport, although they do not always have sufficient resources or equipment. Sports infrastructure is an essential lever for the promotion of education in Madagascar.
Since 2010, the Consulate of Monaco in Madagascar has set up a program to enable young Malagasy people to practice sports and stimulate learning in schools, first in partnership with the CISCOs (School Districts) attached to the DREN (Regional Directorate of National Education) of Analamanga. Now, this program is being implemented in several parts of the country. Each school is thus equipped with jerseys bearing their colours, cups for the winning teams of the tournaments and footballs, basketballs, handballs, volleyball as well as basketball and volleyball nets.
