Sahanala was created in 2010 by Fanamby, a non-profit association managing 4 Category V protected areas, and a natural monuments in Madagascar. The main objective is to support and strengthen the capacities of local communities by professionalizing them and integrating them into a federation strong enough to face international markets, and support conservation activities like biodiversity in their regions.
Our objective is to enhance the activities of farmers by providing them with the necessary elements for responsible farming, and thus obtaining quality products.
Tourism for conservation
Since the foundation stone was laid in 2007 in Anjozorobe where our journey began, our establishments have always had the vocation of promoting sustainable tourism as an economic alternative and lever for the development of local communities. Their involvement in conservation actions is essential for lasting results. The inclusion and participatory approach that we advocate aims to build capacity at the local level. Nearly 1.000 members make up our Tourism federation, the majority of whom are women dedicated to providing an original experience to each of our guests.
