Computer School Akamasoa – Project Fondation des Maisons Chaleureuses Madagascar

A humanitarian association in Madagascar founded by Father Pedro Opeka

The Humanitarian Association AKAMASOA has been created in 1989 to help poor people of Antananarivo who lived in the garbage dump of Andralanitra and in the streets of the capital. The association aims to move people out of these inhuman places to live a life with dignity. Since the beginning, their conviction is that dignity is strongly linked to 3 things: a roof, work, and education.

In 2016, following our meeting with Father Pedro, founder of  the AKAMASOA NGO  in Madagascar, which supports the autonomous living of a village of 25,000 people, we started to  fund the creation the Higher School of Computer Technologies AKAMASOA-ADNEOM: a two-year computer program open to 50 Malagasy bachelors and whose courses are taught by local teachers, within the village. We contributed to building up an IT school aiming to organize a BAC+2-like training for 25 students per year in order to give young people new study and working perspectives. We finally inaugurated in November 2016 our first promotion. The first school year started in November 2016 with an adapted program to the local working environment and business needs.

To undertake this initiative in a collective approach, a call for applications was launched with our employees and one of our Belgium consultants, Lionel Nisen, was selected and sent to Madagascar to conduct the feasibility study and needs in the field.

This school project is a long-term project combining the financial support that Positive Thinking Company provides with the aspiration of helping these young students to acquire professional skills to be able to work and access to decent livelihood.

This project is an integral part of our CSR approach and is part of our goal to participate in the global effort, initiated by the United Nations, to provide access to education for all.
