LA MAISON D’ARNAUD
In 2013 the foundation launched its first project, La Maison d’Arnaud. With our residential home built in Antanamitarana, La Maison d’Arnaud provides long-term housing, health services, specialist mental health care, education and a loving home for up to 50 children.
We work with the local welfare offices and justice system that identify children at risk. Once identified, they move them to a safe environment, La Maison d’Arnaud is a safe Home that provides permanent care for as long as is deemed necessary these children in need. Our project is designed to reduce the pressures on the finance and infrastructure of the local social services as well as to facilitate the introduction of healthy, educated and productive adults back into society.
Without a program like ours many of our children would have ended up living a life of abuse or exploitation many end up on the streets. But here at La Maison d’Arnaud, our children have been given a new chance at life in a healthy, happy and caring atmosphere, we are not just another ‘orphanage’ in Madagascar, we are a Home providing a safe environment where all precautions are enforced rigorously to protect the moral and physical integrity of our children. The children live together like brothers and sisters as we aim to be a source of love and care in order to foster their harmonious physical, neurological and psychological development.
