The CADRI, created in 2004, aims to contribute to the socio-economic development of the municipality of Anosiala, in the region of Analamanga. Adopting a holistic approach to development, it has set up, to varying degrees, 5 inter-related departments addressing different segments of the population and from different angles, the common denominator being the most disadvantaged sections of rural areas:

-Department of general education

-Health and community development department which includes the Mother and Child Reception Centre (CME)

-Department of technical and vocational training

-Department of productive activities and environmental protection

-Department of cultural and sporting activities.

CADRI was therefore born from a private initiative of people native to the region who have remained real players, anxious to put their skills at the service of the disadvantaged populations of the Commune of Anosiala. These “actors” are grouped within the “Association for the Promotion of CADRI” which manages the various departments. At the level of the Centre itself, it is the FVVH Association (Fikambanany Vehivavy Vonona Handroso: Association of Women for Progress) which ensures the coordination of activities. It is affiliated to the Network of Rural Women’s Associations coordinated by the municipality of Anosiala.


The women of Anosiala in Madagascar are 65% farmers or 14% sellers but have only few means of production and income (97% live below the poverty line). Married women are traditionally financially dependent on their husbands and often victims of domestic violence. This marriage prevents them from properly accessing the land. In addition to precarious sanitary conditions, few women have access to medical care. There are 44 deaths per 1000 children (often due to malnutrition).
