On the Orphanage project from missionary Matina Kouvoussis (March, 2015):

"Orphanage - A Noble Cause
Our experience and observations in Madagascar have shown that children in this country are severely marginalised due to poverty. Statistics show that over 60% of the children do not attend school and child labour is still a common phenomenon even today.
Young girls have a higher susceptibility of not receiving an education, as they are forced to marry at a young age. More often than not they are then neglected by their partner and are left to rear their children alone, engaging in hard manual labour to earn a living.
Unfortunately, young girls that are orphaned or that come from problematic families see no future for themselves and become victims of child exploitation.
Our conscience and Christian responsibility does not allow us to ignore this tremendous social problem that surrounds us. It is for this reason that we were motivated to build an orphanage/hostel for girls.
The aim of this project is to raise and protect parentless children, or children that come from problematic families in a safe, Christian environment - providing them holistic care both on a material and spiritual/psychological level, and to offer them an education that is due to every child despite their race, colour or creed."


* "Recent photos of the Orphanage in Madagascar. Isn't it beautiful? Thank you to all those who contributed in some way to make this happen and provide a safe haven for many children. We are now trying to acquire 50 mattresses, single sheets etc to fit 50 beds for the Orphanage. We will keep you posted. God bless you all and may you keep on opening your hearts and help out those who need our help. We will be needing much furniture for the Orphanage so please if you are in a position to, keep on donating..." (from here).
