Akany Avoko Faravohitra is an inspirational children’s refuge in Madagascar caring for destitute, abandoned and neglected girls. The centre provides a safe haven, stable home, love, care and education to girls in need regardless of their background.
Akany Avoko Faravohitra – “Akany” means centre, “Avoko” is the name of a Madagascar Flower and “Faravohitra” is the suburb of Antananarivo, the capital city of Madagascar. It was founded in 1963 after extensive flooding in Antananarivo. It is a large house sitting high on the hill as a safe haven for Girls (5-18 years) to be cared for and educated. The girls are placed by the judges at the juvenile court for their own safety. The home can accommodate 50 girls. The house had fallen into disrepair but Madame Ivelohanta Razafindrasoa is leading the project to re-establish the home for the girls which re-opened in March 2016. The centre is now home to more than 30 girls and funds are urgently required to finish the rehabilitation of the home and for the annual running costs. Donations are very much appreciated.
