MADAGASCAR – June 2020. It was a moment that was much awaited, one that the IECD’s teams have been working for two weeks in Madagascar: the junior school students are back and preparing to sit their BEPC mid-school exam and students at the Saint François-Xavier hospitality school are back in the kitchens. Vulnerable young people and isolated teenager: at last, those who count on the IECD are seeing their teachers and boarding facility supervisors again after two months of remote interactions. On the Great Island, the resumption of activity is now about 80% complete. In 2020, the IECD is celebrating 30 years of action there in support of youth and employment. Each year, its intervention help more than 1,300 children, teenagers, and young adults to go to school and integrate the world of work.
