The Malagasy Diaspora has graciously recounted raw and powerful stories surrounding their identity and how it relates to Madagascar. Now is the chance for Malagasy locals and citizens living in Madagascar to show us what it is like to live in Madagascar.
Mada Life Diaries was created as a way to see how real people spend their money and time during one week living in Madagascar!
As we will receive many perspectives spanning from all socio-economic backgrounds, our main goal is to confront the taboo around discussing money in the Malagasy culture and normalize uncomfortable conversations about the difference in qualities of life and spending power.
If you live in Madagascar and would like to contribute your story, please follow this link for the template on how to contribute to Mada Life Diaries and follow the directions given in the Google document. Email us directly to submit firstname.lastname@example.org.
We hope that by normalizing uncomfortable subjects such as money and showing all aspects of life in Madagascar that it can bring about actionable solutions to fix the divide in Madagascar.
