On the initiative of The Anglo-American School of Moscow, The My Baobab Foundation started a fundraiser which aims to improve food security in the town of Antanimora in the South of Madagascar. The project consists in:
1. Building a well
2. Implementing an irrigation system
3. Buying seeds and seedlings to start new fields in the irrigated areas.
Due to recent events in Eastern Europe, the AAS Moscow could not continue to patronize the fundraiser, but we are not stopping bringing help to the inhabitants of Antanimora. We would like to take time to thank the AAS Moscow and express our gratitude for this wonderful initiative. It means a world to the people you’ve helped. Now it is time to open our crowdfunding to everybody!

For 3 years, southern Madagascar has been suffering from severe drought caused by the repercussions of climate change (fires, sandstorms, lack of rain) and deforestation of the region. In absence of an alternative energy source needed to prepare meals, the local population is forced to cut down trees. Children are forced to travel many kilometers looking for water and firewood. On top of that, due to the drought, crops in 2021 were 40% lower compared with the annual average from the last five years. The level of malnutrition among children below 5 years of age has nearly doubled over four months (from 9% in December 2020 to 16% in March 2021). In December 2021 over 1.5 million Malagasy suffered from food crisis. Among them, more than 400,000 reached the emergency state.
Below are some pictures from the Antanimora region, taken in November 2021. On the left is an early effort on organizing a small irrigated field; on the right we are showing an example of well that is functioning in one part of the region.

The needs
1. Humanitarian
• food aid
2. Developmental
• water for farming
• forest for water preservation
Our solutions
After the needs assessment conducted with our local partners we learned that the best response to the crisis lies in:
• planting cassava, peanuts and corn
• drilling a well if we gather enough funds
• building an irrigation system if we gather enough funds
These solutions will bring food security to the area.
About The My Baobab Foundation
The Foundation was founded in 2007 as an initiative of volunteers acting primarily in support of Malagasy youth. The majority of us gained experience while staying in missionary centers in various African countries (Madagascar, Kenya, Zambia, Uganda).
The Board Members are Gosia Klein, Adam Dziadak, and Ania Piekutowska.
Every year we are helped by volunteers. For the past year we have been working with Ada, who has been amazing at supporting our operations.
