STORYLINE OF BOKY MAMIKO

OCTOBER 2017

During a holiday with her family in the island of Nosy Be, Madagascar, Rossana gets to know Geneviève. They discover to share the same passion for development, Geneviève having founded a primary school in her native village of Djangoa, and Rossana being a lecturer and researcher in poverty and development issues. They decide to do something together and the idea of a library for École Mamiko is born!
