‘The project in Madagascar has been fascinating and has vindicated our targeted approach to making grants’
David Maddock, Chairman
Avonbrook focuses on long-term involvement
in communities so our role and intervention
in education projects abroad are constantly
evolving. There are always new developments
on existing projects – or indeed new projects
– in our sights.
The principal role of Avonbrook is to carefully select specific education projects in the developing world that will receive our funding and long-term support to ensure that a real and lasting difference is made to the community. The most effective way of achieving this is by establishing a partnership with a local or non-governmental organisation that has an in-depth knowledge of the country and particular requirements of the project.
Our first project in Madagascar demonstrates just how effective the partnership system can be. Through a close working relationship with Money for Madagascar we have been able to provide funding for Akany Avoko, a children’s home situated 15km north of Antananarivo.
