Madagascar: Lack of educational materials to run schools
On the eve of the new school year, schools in Madagascar suffer head-on the current political crisis prevailing in the island and the teaching material of second hand is often granted by generous French associations and others to supplement the Malagasy educational institution.

450 institutions were thus able to obtain books and computer equipment of recovery from France via the association of friendship Picardie-Madagascar and Malagasy schools requests continue to grow in recent years.

"I could buy a computer for the administration of our school run. But we do not have the means to equip them books and textbooks, or personal computer in our library room", says to the site a principal trying somehow to make ends meet to properly prepare for the next school year in the Island.

A problematic situation affects not only public schools, since the phenomenon began to spread in private and religious schools of Madagascar.
