Sunshine in Nosy Komba Online Festival 2020

For the last 6 years, the Sunshine Festival we celebrate at ESTEC (The Netherlands) every spring has been the most important fundraising event of our organisation, gathering a greater group of motivated people, sponsors and supporters each year and making possible, not only to keep the School in Nosy Komba running, but also to improve it!

École Banana works thanks to 12 fantastic local teachers and gives access to education to more than 400 children, from kindergarten to the end of the secondary school, that otherwise would have had little chances to access a proper education, and it is reaching better and better results each year.


In the last years, this festival has got together hundreds of people, tens of different performances and activities, and has made fundraising a lot of fun for all of us. Unfortunately this year, given the sanitary crisis, it was not possible to organise this event in the usual format so… WE ARE GOING DIGITAL!

All the funds raised through this event will help us supporting the running expenses of the school (with material and personnel) for the next year, guaranteeing that, even in these difficult times, École Banana will keep bringing the best possible education to these kids.

We are pleased to inform you that Let the Sunshine In – Sunshine in Nosy Komba Online Festival will go live on Friday, 22 May and will last for some weeks. To access our weekly planning and read more about the project and different activities click the button below:
