LAFAZA's Water Project in Antanimbaolina, Madagascar
Our unique direct-trade model means we're deeply connected to the Malagasy community and we're proud to invest in local development projects. In 2020, LAFAZA funded the construction of a spring-fed cistern and water distribution system to bring potable water to 600 residents in the community of Antambolina, which is in the District of Mananara-Avaratra. According to World Health Day, 2 billion people lack safe drinking water globally.
