Fihavanana means Family Parenting to achieve harmonious relationships. Centre Fihavanana has been in existence since 1985 and hosts a number of programs, many of which have an economic justice focus. About 80 women work in the embroidery project, producing beautiful tablecloths, runners and handkerchiefs. Beginners attend classes to learn how to do the exquisite embroidery. The women who are competent work in their homes. Exhibitions and sales of their work are held in Antananarivo and the products find a ready sale there. A wider market is needed, however, to ensure the women a continuing income. Centre Fihavanana's Taratra Micro-Credit Housing Project offers to the women from the embroidery project the opportunity to own their own homes, financed in part by the provision of credit and in part by the income they earn from their embroidery. In addition, Centre Fihavanana offers support to poor children so that they can continue with their education, health programs for mothers and children, support and social activities for the elderly and practical support and nutrition for women and young people in prison.
