The current areas of intervention are located on the East coast and Southeast region of the country:

  • Vatovavy-Fitovinany (Agro/WASH/health): Manakara, Vohipeno and Mananjary districts

These rural areas are densely populated and generally landlocked, and the primary needs of populations are high. The actions are carried out in response to local demand and in partnership with the authorities (in particular the rural villages and the decentralized services of the state), the farmers, the organizations of users, and the local population.

2 local partners:

  • Federasiona Fagnimbona – Inter Aide works with the Fagnimbona federation which teams up with the unions of local farmers (council, tool and seed bank, chains)
  • Tehyna– Since 2012 Inter Aide works with the local association Tehyna in the area of Manakara (south-east) to help the village councils set-up communal services of water, sanitation and hygiene.
