On the invitation of the President, members and supporters of the Association amis de Madagascar ( Freunde Madagaskars e. V.), the Chargé d’affaires co celebrated the 25th anniversary oft he assocation in Munich on 22 September. The actions and dynamism of the Association were highlighted through the commitment of the Raabs, Professor Andri Mahefa and various stakeholders, including the person responsible for implementing the Association’s actions on the ground in Belo-sur-Tsiribihina, who was able to participate as best he could in the Panel discussion by video-conference because he could not get a visa.
The Association is particularly active in the education and the environment issues by promoting partnership. It is in this context that a report was produced by a Professor from the University of South Hampton, with six great Malagasy artists, whose main message was the ability of the Malagasy people to work together towards the same purpose in a spirit of fraternity, sharing of talents and skills .
The Tiharea Group (meaning wealth in malagasy) together with „Tovo de Mada“ hosted the evening which ended in a typically Malagasy musical atmosphere much appreciated by the Germans who were many to honour the event.
The Association deserves support and encouragement for its next 25 years.
