HEROES IN THE REAL WORLDTM - MADAGASCAR

 
 

MADAGASCAR - The fourth largest island in the world.  It’s uniqueness lies in the diversity of its people, the landscape and the unusual biodiversity, including unique animal species and natural resources.


We went to Madagascar to produce a documentary about humanitarian efforts to educate the children in depressed rural areas.  Our subject for this video was Dr. Peter Balasky, a prominent veterinarian from Davie, Florida in the United States.


Aside from running his hospital (Balasky Animal Hospital), Dr. Balasky has spent the last twelve or so years building schools and hiring local teachers to provide educational opportunities in remote villages and areas of Madagascar.   The schools are free to whoever attends.  Dr. Balasky, through his non-profit organization “Friends of Madagascar”, has built or reconditioned fifteen+ schools throughout Madagascar, his favorite being the Green School in Miandrizato, near Sandrandahy in the central highlands.  Dr. Balasky is also involved in Conservation efforts and improving personal health in Madagascar.


We flew into the capital city - Antananarivo, in the center of the island.  The pictures you see at the top of this page are from that city.  It’s not too hard to fall in love with this place and its people, especially the children.


On these pages you will see highlights of our journey and a 10-minute promo for a 1-hour pilot for a TV series we will be producing.  We are a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and if you like what you see, you can contribute to our efforts by clicking on the DONATE tab at the top of any page.  I hope you enjoy your visit.
