Madagascar – 17 June 2016

The Diaspora Comes Together to Contribute to Madagascar’s Development

An estimated 120,000 members of the Malagasy diaspora are scattered across all of the world’s continents, and there are at least 2,000 organizations around the globe working for the development of Madagascar.

And yet, until today, every individual or joint initiative striving to move Madagascar ahead has been functioning in a vacuum and struggles to benefit the country.

In order to get to know each other and unite efforts for the development of Madagascar, a number of organizations have decided to hold a three-day conference on campus at the University of Aix-en-Provence, France, called Zama Aix 2016. The conference, to be held in July, will include 12 round tables, 10 workshops, a forum for organizations and artists, cultural performances, and a final concert.
