“Talk to our volunteers”
Sunshine in Nosy Komba has a key role in the local education programme of the Nosy Komba village, with several initiative and projects. The École Banana supported by us, works thanks to fantastic local teachers and gives access to education to more than 400 children, from kindergarten to the end of secondary school, that otherwise would have had little chances to access proper education, and it is reaching better and better results each year.
Sunshine in Nosy Komba is also active on the health care and sanitation on the island. In 2020 a total of 12 babies were born in the maternity centre built by the association, and in 2021 there have been already 5 births. In addition, the centre also provides primary medical care to the local population, (this year 1000 consultations), manage a small pharmacy and monitor the Covid-19 cases (so far no cases have been identified in the village), which are crucial actions in the current pandemic situation.
