Monaco and Madagascar have a special relationship and MAP has actively supported many projects on the island.

In 1995, MAP met Father Pedro Opeka who devoted his life to saving Malagasy children and adults from the garbage dumps of Antananarivo. In 1997, MAP raised the funds for the construction of the “Rainier III Primary School” and went on to build the “Prince Albert College”, the “Lycée Grimaldi” and the “Cantine du Rocher” in the town of Akamasoa, attracting over 25,000 people.

During the 2017 field mission, on February 27, HSH Prince Albert II honoured with His presence the inauguration ceremonies of the “Prince Jacques and Princess Gabriella of Monaco” school and of the “HSH Princess Charlene of Monaco” school.

The Presidency and Board members of MAP were also present. MAP regularly carries out field and medical missions, and has since worked with other committed actors in Madagascar, such as Father Noé and Sister Louise in the regions of Nosy Bé and Tananarive since 2002 for the construction, renovation and expansion of schools, canteens, sports fields and daily meals for pupils, with the Consulate of Monaco and Mr Cyril Juge since 2004, and recently with the NGO Bel Avenir in the south of the island.
