Main aim of the charity

The main aim of the charity is to raise awareness of the need to protect the sea, to adapt to climate change while restoring the ecological and socio-economic roles of coral reefs through the construction of artificial habitats for marine species by the village fishermen themselves. This is to create a village income-generating activity, marine ecotourism.

How the employee got involved and why

Every time I travel in Toliara during a free time, I see the destruction of the corals which intensifies the waves and the cyclones. Since 2020, I decided to support the local villagers, fishers to make artificial habitats by the eco-technology Fishes Banking, while valuing the debris of dead corals and while training the villagers so that they can become autonomous later.

What work does the employee do for charity

Firstly, I raise funds for the training of the villagers and the fabrication of artificial habitats. I also give training to the fishermen villagers on how to manage an association and on communication, how to address tourists. Finally, I ensure the communication and the promotion of the project at the national level.
