Completion of primary school building in Madagascar with SEED Madagascar
During a handover ceremony earlier this fall, SEED Madagascar formally transferred the ownership of Emagnevy Primary School back to the community of Madagascar’s rural Anosy region.
Teneo funded this education infrastructure project which included 2 new classrooms as well as repairs to an existing school building. The new school enables 350 students to attend full days of lessons in a safe learning environment.
The project also included the build of a 3-room teachers’ house to help retain and attract high quality teachers to the school. Latrines and a menstrual hygiene unit was built as was a 10,000-liter rainwater harvesting system.
In order to offset the carbon emissions in building the school, SEED Madagascar planted 800 trees, including 144 fruit trees which will provide nutritious food for the students as well as the wider community.
The project came in £5k under budget as fewer materials were needed than had been anticipated. Some of the under spend went towards repairing a well and the rest has been allocated to the next SEED education infrastructure project, Sarisambo, which Teneo is also funding.
