Our Story

Over the past decade, we have given 200,000+ young adolescents access to critical health information, life skills, and socio-emotional support services.


Projet Jeune Leader was founded in 2013 to disrupt the status quo of sexuality education in Madagascar.

Before Projet Jeune Leader, comprehensive sexuality education was nonexistent in the public school system in Madagascar.

Through continuous learning and iteration, we have pioneered a cost-effective, high-quality model for comprehensive sexuality education that is unique in Madagascar — and the world.


An engaged classroom scene in Madagascar where a sexuality educator in a white shirt with “MPANABE JEUNE LEADER” written on it is standing in front of a blackboard smiling and raising her arm. Students in blue uniforms are standing in front of her and appear to be participating actively. The classroom is rudimentary, with clay walls and wooden beam roof.

By 2026, we aim to reach 20% of Madagascar's rural public middle school students.
