The Akbaraly Foundation is a humanitarian organization that works for the improvement of the living conditions in Madagascar; driving actions are mainly focused on women and children health. Founded in 2008 by Cinzia Catalfamo Akbaraly, the Akbaraly Foundation allocated financial resources to humanitarian projects related to sustainable development, education, health services and gives its support in case of natural disasters. It partners with other national and international NGOs, including CIPLA, Harvard University, The Buck Institute for Research on Aging and the Madagascar Red Cross.
The Akbaraly Foundation fights against extreme poverty and promotes sustainable development upon the population of Madagascar by improving the living conditions of the most vulnerable groups.
The improvement of the living conditions of these groups responds to the need to protect and encourage the respect of the fundamental rights of every human being, based on the principles of the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights”.
Each project implemented by the Foundation is set up according to our values:
Respect for all individuals and cultures
The importance of strategic partnerships
Accountability and transparency
Economic sustainability of any intervention
Multiculturalism of the staff
Holistic and integrated vision
The Group has a great potential that may have a significant impact on the country’s future. The active involvement in education, culture, health of the population of Madagascar underscores the commitment of the Group to the society.
