Projects > Madagascar

Madagascar has been the first country in which RTM started its activity in 1973. In facts volunteers and religious men of the Church of Reggio Emilia, who afterwards founded RTM, arrived on the “red island” in the early 1967 and immediately tried to give an answer to the essential needs of the inhabitants. Complex needs like nutritional and sanitary problems, the lack of jobs that could sustains entire families, economical and social insecurity, inadequacy of structures and public services, absence of institutions. During these 40 years the activity of RTM has been structured and strengthened thanks to the support of big sponsors and the generosity and reliability of more than 300 volunteers who allowed the intervention in different regions helping an increasingly number of inhabitants. Now RTM is active in a lot of towns and rural areas of Madagascar with project and interventions in which are involved 15 Italian volunteers and 281 local person.
