27th August 2009 - THE PLINTH: One of our friends has been given the amazing opportunity to spend an hour on the Plinth in London's Trafalgar Square. She is using this opportunity to speak about the Madagascar Project, and spread our website to the world via Sky Arts channel.

8th March 2009 - Life of the Madagascar Project has been nigh on silent these days. Life just seems too busy sometimes... We are moving to formalize various aspects. We have drawn up Terms Of Reference for our accociation under Hertford Community Church. We are opening a new bank account which allows for more transparency and accountability. We are also formalising our membership (as part of the bank account and ToR requirements). So the behind the scenes of the Madagascar Project is under going some substantial changes, but we hope prayerfully these are changes that God wants and that he can use to make us more effective. Check back soon for more details...
