Madagascar, Ampasindava, rural electrification


Experts-Solidaires assists the rural commune of Mangoaka located in the extreme north of Madagascar in the DIANA region and the Urban Pole Commune Association of Diego Suarez (ACPU DS) in setting up an electrification network in the village of Ampasindava. The objective of this project is to stimulate and promote local development. An integrated multi-actor approach is currently being implemented in this village to intervene on different levers allowing a productive use of electricity. These include intervening on the promotion of rural entrepreneurship, training, support for eco-tourism development and access to micro-credit.

The realization of the network began in November 2016 and will end in March 2017. The first test of the electricity network of Ampasindava was a success and the first spark sprang in the school of the village.
