Rise and Shine Scholarship

program 2021

It's again that part of the year where we are starting the RISE AND SHINE Scholarship Program that has been running since 2015, allowing several kids in Nosy Komba to continue their studies and open the doors to a brighter future for them and their families.

The program, which is currently supporting 32 scholars, provides top Secondary School students with a scholarship to go to High School and, eventually, University. This scholarship covers the costs of tuition fees, books purchase, food and accommodation and commuting.

Furthermore, as part of the program, these students are given the chance to be actively involved in the development of their village, where they come back during weekends and holidays to help out in the library, teach younger children to read and carry out other educational activities planned with the local teachers.

To sponsor our students, we would ask you to collaborate with 35€ per month*. All these funds will go to the field (you can have more information about SNK Foundation Policy here) and, as a godparent, you would also get regular reports with the kids' school results, as well as pictures and letters.

To sponsor a child, you can contact us here or by email before 30 November 2020.

In January, we will present to you the kid/s you are supporting and from then on we will also give you regular news on the children's progress.

With your help we will make more and more kids rise and shine as they deserve:

Thank you for your support!

A model of self‐sustained development based on democracy and empowerment of the local population, where all the components of a dignifying life are considered.

Coronavirus - Our Actions

Most of the issues related to the current Coronavirus (COVID19) need to be addressed at national and international level. Yet, we want to do our part and together with the local actors we are putting in place several actions to support the local population. We are in constant contact with the local population and further actions may be taken depending on the evolution of the situation in Madagascar and in the region of Nosy Komba.



Education is a lifelong process

Every year we support basic education for 400 kids, scholarships for high-school and university and alphabetization classes for adults.

Only a healthy population can develop itself

We guarantee assistance in emergencies and promote the construction of private toilets and we have opened two maternity centers.

Empowering the people to build their future

By promoting local initiatives and knowledge transfer, we contribute to a self-sustained development with a long perspective.
