Spirit and commitment
For sustainable development and environmental conservation
As large as France and the Benelux countries combined, the island of Madagascar remains one of the twelve poorest countries of the World. The unique flora and fauna are in constant danger, threatened by deforestation as by intensive fishing. And as for education, the gross enrollment rate is one of the fifteen lowest in the world.
Faced with this situation, Oceane Aventures committed to a sustainable development and environmental conservation. These actions in partnership or not are diverse and affect the whole of Madagascar.
Creates an ethical charter for our guides. It aims to minimize the impact of tourism on the environment through simple but daily gestures.
Began a partnership with the NGO “Bel Avenir” working in the field of education and hygiene. Oceane Aventures distributed a paper to its customers making them aware of the proper distribution of donations.
Some involvement in the fight against sex tourism through many partners. The actions are essentially advertising campaigns to educate travelers about the scourge. Our guides have also been trained.
Ratified an agreement with the NGOs working in Fanamby rural development. Through this agreement we pledge to donate a portion of the profits of a circuit to finance micro-projects.
For sustainable development and environmental conservation, Oceane Aventures wants to be more than a tour operator and a true corporate citizen.
“We are aware that tourism can be a lever of development for the country: employment creation, foreign exchange inflows, induced multiple effects. But our job also puts us in a position of privileged observer and despite all the talk in fashion: Eco-tourism, sustainable development, tourism fair, if we find that the profits generated by tourism are important, the wealth they generate too little benefit to the host country, they are very unevenly distributed … The strategy of our group is to prioritize the concept of “sustainable development” in all aspects of business life – Mamy Randriamasinoro.
