With a population of over 20 million, 80% of people in Madagascar are battling abject poverty, most people living under the recommended $2 per day.
For over 15 years, the members of the family international have been working tirelessly to help the underprivileged break out of their poverty status. They have also been seeking to improve the spiritual lives of the people.
Some of notable accomplishments include sharing of food and clothing, building of structures for widows and poor families, building fully equipped schools, operating small dispensaries, and organizing English and French classes for the less privileged. TFI have recently focused their efforts towards improving the lives of destitute children, orphans and juvenile prisoners.

SAVE THE YOUTH—YOUTH OUTREACH AND SUPPORT
As earlier mentioned, TFI in Madagascar has been focused on improving the quality of life of the youths.
