Meet some of our scholars to find out what education means to them - please
donate to Blue Ventures' school scholarships programme to help more bright young people in southwest Madagascar pursue their dreams!

Angelitina comes from Andavadoaka and is being supported by Blue Ventures to attend high school (lycee) in the nearby town of Morombe.
She is in the second class (lowest grade in high school) and her favourite subject is Earth and Life Sciences because she wants to become a doctor. In her spare time she likes to play basketball. She thinks that education is important for girls because it means that they can have the same rights as boys.


 

Anselme is one of Blue Ventures' first school scholars to attend university. He was a member of the Club AloAlo while at school in Andavadoaka and has been interested in environmental protection from a young age. Anselme is studying Geography at the University of Toliara and hopes to be able to use the skills that he is gaining in order to help his community with conservation in the future. He was recently awarded a Samba-Getty scholarship in support of his higher education.

He is now in his final year at the high school (lycee) in Morombe and serves as student association president. Miandry would like to become a teacher so that he can share his knowledge with others.
