About Us

Since our founding in 2013, Projet Jeune Leader has brought comprehensive sexuality education to tens of thousands of adolescents across Madagascar.

We were founded to ensure every adolescent has the information and support they need to reach their full potential.

We started as a small pilot project in four schools. A decade later, we have built a powerful comprehensive sexuality education model integrated in Madagascar's education system.

This is a photo of a group of children playing with a basketball on a dirt court in front of a small, dilapidated brick building. The children are playing with a Projet Jeune Leader staff member who looks to be throwing or catching the ball. The sky is blue and there are trees and other children watching in the background.

Our dedicated team is driven by a shared mission to transform the lives of Madagascar's youth.

Every young person in Madagascar thrives during adolescence.

We work to ensure that every adolescent in Madagascar has essential knowledge, skills, and support through comprehensive sexuality education.
