7 March 2014: How the 'Avon' model is empowering women to 'inspire change' in Madagascar by Laura Robson in The Huffington Post

This sustainable social enterprise model allows them to generate a small income for their otherwise voluntary work. In addition to providing voluntary family planning services, they teach semi-nomadic fishing families along Madagascar's south west coast how to improve their health.
