Do you remember ou projects L'arbre notre survie, L'eau si précieuse
et Construction de fours économes in Madagascar ?

You do ? Excellent, for these are actions we wish to continue. They were carried out in 2016 alongside Alain Guillez, refractory materials and traditional masonry specialist and plantation expert, who voluntarily trained local young people to those techniques. The support of many donors of the Rosalie Projects allowed us to experiment with this triple project!

Mr. Guillez responded positively to our request to come back this year for 2 months, from April to May. From Fort Dauphin to hard-to-reach villages of the Androy region, he generously shared his expertise and craftsmanship last year, devoting his energy to:

A skill transfer and a capacity-building that allowed many villagers to access to a better quality of life.

"Alban, one of the fellow builders – as Alain affectionately calls them – saved a community by building an oven. He also found water and, thanks to the well he built, fewer people were sick! Clarel, another young man, dug a well in the Androy area. Thanks to him, the villagers have drinking water."

Our triple goal for 2017

In front of the many needs and given the success of the actions carried out in 2016, Alain's return arouses hope and enthusiasm among our Communities of Daugthers of Charity and young trainees, as an opportunity is given here to:

  • continue to train young people and improve their learning;
  • build improved kitchens (x 28) and bread ovens (x 6);
  • dig new wells 4 to 10 m deep (x 10) and repair water tanks;
  • carry on reforestation to attract water and helps agriculture;
  • grow medicinal plants (picking, packaging and dosage).

Thanks to the training provided last year, 4 young professionals have been able to work independently and can now supervise trainees for practical work. Alain is cheerful: "Even after I am gone, there will be a way to answer all the needs identified for work can now be carried on!"

between desert and woodlands

An exceptional budget for a tremendous project!

It is the first time that the Rosalie Projects have accepted such an important funding: over €16,000! However, our solidarity, eco-responsible and sustainable project will help thousands of people by improving their living conditions, and that is also important.

Costs will be reduced at the lowest possible:

  • The materials used are nearby;
  • Alain's work is completely voluntary and we welcome him;
  • We assume the costs of feeding the workers in the different places during the training days.

These expenditures mainly include:

  • Labour (wages of workers and apprentices' compensations);
  • Tools (picks, hammers and shovels);
  • Transportation (men and materials).

To ensure the success of this project, we are also striving to consolidate partnerships with companies for part of the financing!

Thank you for your continued support! And thank you for spreading the word!

I am a Daughter of Charity of the Province of Madagascar who joined the Company on 27 November 1982. I am a social worker by training.
My Community is called Maison Saint Vincent de Paul in Tolagnaro, not far from the Provincial House, where the first Daughters of Charity arrived in 1897.
We are 9 Sisters who work in different departments: primary school with 800 pupils, girls' boarding school, social service: assistance for the elderly, chronically ill, nutritional recovery, visits to prisons. My present service is precisely with the prisoners.
I am very happy to be associated with this great "Rosalie Project" because the training given by Mr. Alain and the work done last year has already changed the lives of many people. It is really beautiful ! Our gratitude is expressed through prayer.
THANK YOU to all the people who will support us in 2017, to continue this work with the young "companions builders" very motivated!

Let's talk !

Chers donateurs, Encore mille merci pour votre générosité qui nous a permis de réaliser notre rêve de satisfaire les besoins fondamentaux de la population de Tsihombe et de Beloha qui souffre du manque d’eau, par la construction des puits financés par vos dons, par la pratique du reboisement pour prévenir la sècheresse, ainsi que par la construction des cuisines améliorées. Vraiment, les plus démunis bénéficient de la globalisation de la charité ! Aujourd’hui, vous ne pouvez pas imaginer combien la vie de la population a changé grâce à l’eau. Elle participe activement au reboisement et prépare avec soins leur nourriture. Avec la population qui a bénéficié de ces projets, nous rendons grâce à Dieu et vous assurons notre prière reconnaissante. Que le Seigneur vous bénisse tous !

Merci pour la générosité de ceux et celles qui soutiennent notre projet ! C'est formidable ! Nous avons atteint 16500 Euro. Que Dieu bénisse vos efforts et que cela porte du fruit ! Je viens vous partager aussi quelques nouvelles reçues d'Alain qui part aujourd'hui de Suisse pour nous rejoindre sur place : "Je fais mes adieux à ma famille, qui est partie prenante de ma mission à Madagascar. Je suis très heureux de cet envol tout proche. C’est un beau cadeau de pouvoir vivre les fêtes pascales avec les plus démunis. Notre démarche (réalisation des projets et célébrations) sont porteuses de joie, d’espoir et de bonheur pour tout un peuple ! Hélène m'accompagnera durant tout le séjour, et elle va réaliser un film sur notre travail. Ce que nous bâtissons doit-être connu, c'est une démarche qui s'inscrit dans la bonté infinie de Dieu pour les générations futures." Ici la motivation est grande, les jeunes attendent patiemment son arrivée pour commencer la formation. La motivation est grande !

Qu'il est formidable de constater votre générosité et que malgré la distance, nous pouvons lutter ensemble contre une cause de pauvreté bien déterminée grâce à la technologie moderne. Que Dieu bénisse nos efforts ! Ici, toute l'équipe se prépare avec impatience à l'arrivée prochaine de Mr Alain, et la population de Tsihombe demande presque chaque jour à Sr Josiane quand les travaux commenceront. Nous espérons vivement que grâce à la solidarité, notre grand projet atteindra les 100 % du financement. Déjà, nous remercions chacun et chacune de tout notre cœur et prions pour vous !
