Initiatives of ONG St. Gabriel, Madagascar Towards the Care of the Earth

Madagascar is one of worst affected countries in the world regarding the climate change. Destruction of thousands of hectares of virgin forests for agricultural purpose is worsening the situation. The South of Madagascar is hit by a very severe drought and many people have lost their lives due to hunger.

Under the banner of our NGO, ONG St Gabriel, efforts are being made to educate the youth and bring in awareness to create a healthy environment.

Concrete actions such as the planting 100 000 citrodia trees in 50 hectares of land, solar powered submersible pumps for drinking water supply to the villagers and construction of ecological smokeless cooking oven are being undertaken. Building bio-gas plants for the families who are having cows is also under consideration.
