You’ll be living and working in the community of Saint Luce, 50 kilometres from Madagascar’s shipping hub Fort Dauphin, during your volunteer volunteer placement. You’ll camp in some of the most beautiful and remote parts of the island, within rural, isolated communities. Camping facilities are provided but you will need to bring your own tent. At times you will camp at the lakeside site of Lanirano, which is fully equipped with flush toilets and showers as well as electricity. In very rural areas facilities will be more basic. Water is primarily collected as rainwater and will be treated for drinking.
A resident cook travels with the team and is responsible for preparing meals for you each day. In Fort Dauphin, try some of the excellent restaurants that serve interesting Western and Malagasy dishes.
Although you will be expected to work hard, the lush forests and stunning beaches make it an experience you will cherish forever. This volunteer and work experience will open your eyes to a new way of life as you learn about this amazing location and its people.
