|Diggging foundations for a new school (now completed) 2011|
Money for Madagascar (MfM) is a small charity, founded in 1986 that aims to build the resilience of vulnerable people and conserve the environment of Madagascar through sustainable, community-led initiatives. MfM is engaged in a holistic programme providing funding for clean water and sanitation; disaster relief; health, education and welfare; environmental sustainability and individual and community enterprise.
MfM is looking to appoint a new Chair with the aim of providing strategic leadership as the charity expand its work in Madagascar. Knowledge of Madagascar is not essential but would be a very welcome bonus. The role of Chair is an honorary position, with reasonable expenses paid. The Charity's administrative office is based in Lancaster but there are 12 trustees spread across the United Kingdom and it is not essential for the Chair to be based in North West England.
Essentially a funding body with recent expenditure in the region of £250,000 per year, the charity work with and through Malagasy partners as a matter of principle, believing that they have their own solutions. MfM aims to continue to help build the capacity of community leaders to transform their lives and foster grass-roots sustainable development.
If this opportunity might interest you, MfM would be delighted to send you details. If this is not for you, but you may know a potential applicant, they would be very grateful if you would pass this on to interested parties.
