Extension and Repair of High School in Madagascar

Requested by

Lycée André Resampa Antsirabe non-profit high school

Who are you trying to help? What issue are you trying to address?

The Lycee Andre Resampa is the only public high school in Antsirabe providing a full course of secondary education to young people from all sections of the community. The school has been in existence for 48 years, but its buildings have never been extended or refurbished. We have a constantly increasing number of pupils wanting to come to the school, and we are particularly concerned about the need to educate girls and to provide for vulnerable and disadvantaged children, including children from ethnic minorities. We also provide places for 250 “social cases” (pupils who do not pay fees).

Recently, at the commencement of the 2009-2010 academic year, the second class sections were doubled as a result of ministerial instructions. Currently there are 50 to 60 students in each class, which is far too many for effective teaching and learning, particularly in the upper classes.

To cope with this increase, and to provide for everyone who wants to come to the school, we need better facilities, better equipment, more teaching and learning space.

This is the issue we are trying to address: better facilities to help the young people of our town to access a quality education.

What is your project and how will it help?

Our project is entitled “Extension and rehabilitation of the Lycee Andre Resampa High School”

This expansion is timely, given the economic situation of our country, and has become an absolute necessity and vital in the short term so that we can fulfill our mission. We need to construct a new school building with the maximum classroom space, a covered gym for physical education and sports development and a proper boarding hostel.

It may be that the latter is a bit ambitious, but on the eve of its fiftieth anniversary (1963-2013), we need to be able to offer better educational infrastructure to the population of the city and the neighbouring towns. So, we make a call for the funding of this infrastructure.

How can other people partner with you on your project?

First of all, the partner must understand our project specific goals to be able cooperate with us in realising our objective for education for all.

1- A partner can supply us ICT equipment to enable our pupils having computer science course.
2- A partner can help us by furnishing books to enable us building a library which is at the norm.
3- Funding our urgent project entitled “Extension and rehabilitation of LARA high school” which is submitted below, helping us to continue educating our children.
4- A partner can help us by providing financial assistance to repair sports fields: football, basketball, long jump etc.
5- A partner can also help us by collaborating through “school twinning”.

Please detail the resources that you need.

First, it is the extension of the main building by building a second floor to
cope with the increasing number of students, because the LARA High School is the only public institution in the city. Anyway, helps are not forcefully financial, they can naturally be done by offering goods which match our needs.

Overall project costs:
1- A partner can supply us ICT equipment to enable our pupils having computer science course.
Amount in US$27,000

2- A partner can help us by furnishing books to enable us building a library which is at the norm.
Amount in US$65,000
