Drinking water supply

As part of sustainable community development, the Inside Madagascar association wishes to provide drinking water for the community of local vanilla producers.

Currently, access to drinking water and poor sanitation and hygiene practices are a concern in rural areas. In Andrikiriky fokontany, for example, residents collect the water they consume from the canals that are used to irrigate the rice fields. The dishes, the laundry and the toilet are often done in the same place.

This water is often unfit for consumption, which has an impact on the health of the population.

Les bénéficiaires directs de ce projet seront les 575 familles de planteurs de l’APVAM mais toute la population avoisinante en profitera, soit plus de 10 000 personnes réparties sur douze (12) villages dans le District d’Antalaha.


Access to healthcare remains a major problem in Madagascar. In the town of Antombana, which has seven fokontany (traditional villages), there is only one health centre. This forces some planters to walk for several hours to seek treatment in dispensaries. The nearest hospital is in Antalaha and the river and the road, which is in poor condition, are reserved only for those who have or can pay for means of transport, but the journey can take from 2 to 7 hours, preventing emergencies from being dealt with.

Our goal is to respond to emergencies for producers. To do this, Inside Madagascar has set up a social fund dedicated to health costs. Producers can access this fund in the event of illness, to finance an emergency trip to the appropriate health center or drug treatment.

Reinforcement of security

The farmers we are working with are often victims of vanilla theft, which pressures them to harvest the pods prematurely. However, this early vanilla harvest is detrimental to the quality of their products.

Avec l’appui des forces de l’ordre de la Gendarmerie Nationale, Inside Madagascar a décidé d’aider les producteurs de l’APVAM dans le gardiennage de leur champ de culture par l’octroi d’équipements de sécurité, notamment lampes torches, sifflets et imperméables.
