The Merci Endowment Fund works with the Abc Domino association in the Tuléar region of southwest Madagascar. This region is ranked by the International Monetary Fund as the 4th poorest country in the world. In this particularly poor and isolated province, deserted by international organizations, 47% of children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition and access to school is a daily challenge for all children.


Since 2010, the Merci Endowment Fund has been involved in the construction of 6 elementary school, 2 middle schools and 1 high school, providing schooling for 3,500 children with its long-standing partner Abc Domino. The Merci Endowment Fund also supports the provisioning of 6 canteens, ensuring a daily meal for pupils, sometimes the only one of the day. In 2022, an IT school opened its doors to welcome the first baccalaureate graduates.
