There are numerous ways to support us, whether you’re an individual, a public organization, a corporation or a school.
Are you a public organization?
The French law of February 9, 2005 authorizes French public organizations to donate up to 1% of their budget for financing safe water systems in international solidarity and development. These funds are debited from the water bills of the users. The projects initiated by EDM fall into this category of the law.
Your public organization can participate in our projects and contribute to the amelioration of living conditions of students and villagers in these disinherited regions. It’s establishing a real partnership with the guarantee of project completion in the field.
“Malgach week has been organized each year since 2003 in Semur-En-Auxois in Burgundy (Côtes d'Or) France by the association "Aidons Ecoles Du Monde: hiking, cycling, crafts fairs…”

Operation "Bowl of rice" :
Rice is the basic foodstuff in the bush, often the sole source, which results in malnutrition.
The principle: a meal in the school cafeteria is replaced by a lighter meal consisting of a bowl of rice.
The difference in price is donated to EDM. In return, EDM can organize a scholastic work session about Madagascar with the students.
Races, evening events, artisan crafts sales, fairs.. these actions are often at the initiative of teachers, students, parents.
“ The Robert Doisneau High School in Corbeil-Essones in France organizes each year a race for solidarity.
