Trip to Madagascar

On Thursday 9th October 2014, a group of 12 students and 2 teachers left for their humanitarian trip to Madagascar arriving on the island the next day. During their stay, they took care of the children who live in an orphanage, helped with the construction of the site, and discovered the local culture.

Every night, the students went to the orphanage, looked after the children and ate with them. They also took part in other types of activities together with the children. For example, on Saturday 11th of October, students went to the beach with the orphans. Maurine, in grade 13FB said the day they arrived, they visited the children and gave them presents. The orphans were extremely touched and were very happy.

The students visited the school building which was built last year as well as a small health centre. The school is made of five big rooms, and around the school, there is a garden and a place to have meals.

The students also had a chance to discover the island’s nature: they visited caves, swam in the ocean, and saw lemurs, the animal that is typical for Madagascar.

This trip marked the participants and the orphans of Madagascar. An opportunity to make such an experience doesn’t occur often. Aurore, a grade 13th IB student says that this trip has been a real life changing experience and an eye-opener. Despite the country’s poverty the people glow by their smiles and their happiness.
