Association for School and Children’s Books in Madagascar


Klaus-Christian KThe Edition Vakoka Vakiteny does a great and important work! Therefore, in 2009, some friends and supporters of the enthusiastic young Malagasy Publishing Company decided to establish the Association for School and Children’s Books in Madagascar (Förderverein Madagaskar Schul- und Kinderbücher e.V.) in Germany, with the one purpose of supporting their work for the benefit of the Malagasy children. By summer 2022, we had successfully collected more than 65,000 Euro from private people, schools, companies and organisations. Hundred percent of this money has been sent to Madagascar enabling Vakoka Vakiteny to develop, issue and print many colourful and interesting books for children and young people in Madagascar. The results are highly encouraging. 18 titles in more than 32,000 copies have been issued and distributed, most of them financed by our Association.

Below you will find some facts about the Association and you can download a membership application. Active members will be invited to the annual meeting and can actively contribute in the forming of the association’s decisions. Being an active member of the Association is the most efficient form of supporting this important work and gives you a real influence!

Please join us in our effort by becoming a member of the Association, donating books to schools or children or just by giving a one-time donation. We will provide you with information and would be happy to share the joy of cooperating with Vakoka Vakiteny with you.

Do not hesitate to contact us! We promise that every e-mail will be answered.

Yours faithfully,

Dr. Klaus-Christian Küspert
