Community development programme, Madagascar

Make a real impact in one of the most overlooked regions of Madagascar


2 – 10 weeks (start dates in January, April, July, October)


Starting from £795 (2 week placement)


Fort Dauphin

In brief

A Community Development expedition combines elements of conservation, construction, community work and education – but that’s not all it takes to run a charity in stunning south east Madagascar! That’s why you’ll also join us in our offices in Fort Dauphin to gain crucial experience into the workings of a conservation and development NGO.


You’ll be getting involved where it really matters, allowing you to make a real impact in one of the most overlooked regions of Madagascar.

Your expedition day could include:

  • building and repairing schools and latrines
  • making furniture for classrooms
  • delivering health and environmental education sessions
  • conducting conservation research

……or writing blogs to tell our donors and supporters about the difference we’re making together.

You’ll be supported by our superb team of local guides, construction staff and national and international specialists to involve you in the day-to-day work of the organisation both in town and in the field.

A Community Development expedition can be part of a gap year, to provide a break from regular everyday life at home or to prepare you for a new career in development education or conservation sectors.

A Community Development internship lends itself to those who are joining the team as part of an academic course and particularly those who are aiming to be awarded credits. We’ll provide more feedback and you’ll come back with a final report.
