AOM runs two preschool-primary schools in Antsirabe, providing 130 of the neediest children (aged 3-7) with an education for the entire day, which gives the parents a chance to spend the day earning money. We are currently raising funds to create more schools in other vulnerable communities.
AOM provides the pre-school children with 5 meals a week. We make sure that they get adequate nutrition for at least one meal a day. That means not only rice, but also yogurt and greens when funding allows. We also want to provide more children and families with adequate health and dental care.
As funding allows, AOM provides job training for parents so they can better provide for their families. After 6 months of training on sewing machines, attending all classes and finishing a sewing test, mothers are able to get jobs in clothing factories or work in the market sewing.
