TAMANA is a humanitarian association created in December 2021, recognised as being of general interest and governed by the French law of 1 July 1901. Its mission is to improve the daily life of the Malagasy population.
Thus, TAMANA’s objective is to raise and to participate in humanitarian projects to help populations in need while developing a global support (health, social, education) by valuing sharing and solidarity in Madagascar.
