Help kids succeed!

The Chrysalis School is helping kids succeed in a very tough environment! According to the World Bank, Madagascar is now the world’s poorest country, and most people there live on less than one dollar per day.

Our students are working hard, but they could use some help!
Can you help by contributing to our online fundraiser?


Our fundraiser will help the Chrysalis School finish its school building, which has been incomplete for years, add sanitary bathrooms and a library. We aim to raise $25,000 to cover the cost of construction, desks and a solar panel. The school has never had electricity, so the addition of a solar panel would be a huge improvement to the learning environment.

Thanks to generous donors, our fundraiser in Portland, Oregon raised $6,000, which will allow us to begin work on the most urgent repairs. But we have a long way to go to reach our goal. Please contribute today!
