| PROJECT ALAOTRA - MODULE
is one of the most important requisites for a better living standard
as well as for sustainable conservation. MWC therefore implements
environmental education in the public primary schools (EPP) of
the region of Alaotra. The goal is to raise public sensitivity
and appreciation for the importance of an intact lake and preserved
The basis of this education program is a comic book developed
by MWC and realized by the Malagasy artist Ramafa. It is called
„AROVY FA HARENA“ which means „Protect/preserve
because it is richeness". The nine episodes tell the adventures
of the village boy Fidy, the Bandro Malala and their friends.
Each episode addresses a specific conservation issue of the local
ecoysytem and serves as a starting point for further actvities
on the subject. The teachers are trained, informed in detail and
supplied with supportive educational material by MWC.
In 2006 MWC has started to print and distribute copies of the
comic and will gradually do so in the forthcoming years for all
primary schools of the Alaotra region.
