Märtha Louise's visit Madagascar with Unicef, 11-14 May 2008

Princess Märtha Louise will visit Madagascar in May, as the part of a project with Unicef. The project is connected with literacy in Madagascar for children. A large amount of books are being printed, so that the children will have something in their own languages and connected to their own reality to read.

Here is an article from Unicef connected to the project of getting more children literate in Madagascar: UNICEF - Madagascar - New educational approach keeps Madagascar’s children interested in learning

This sounds very interesting.
I always like to see the members of the Royal Family working for Unicef. The CP, the Queen and also Märtha Louise.
I hope she'll have a safe trip.

Aftenposten: After 17 hours travelling, Princess Märtha Louise (36) arrived at Madagascar late Sunday afternoon. And she brought the rain to the exotic isle.

Märtha Louise got the royal welcome. She's the first Norwegian Royal to visit the nation, which also has a Norwegian population around 90.

"We have pointed out that this is not an official visit, but the hosts are very taken with the fact that Märtha Louise is the King's daugher, and shall be treated thusly," Norwegian Ambassador Hans Frederik Lehne.

Parts of the proceedings from Märtha Louise's latest book will go to the project "sammen for barnebøker" (Together for children's books) that she's in Madagascar to help promote.

While she's there, she will open a writing competition, to increase the amount of books written in the local language for children. 20 of the best contributions will become children's books. A total of 40,000 books will be sent out to families with children.

"I am occupied with the fact that all children have the right to be read to. It is a privilege to be a contributor so that more children will get children's books based on their own history, culture, language and story-telling tradition," says the Princess.

Only 14% of children in Madagascar finish middle school.

This is a great project for the princess to participate in, indeed. I love the fact that the books given are in the local language and represents things within their environment--that's really focusing on the kids.

What I gather, from what I've read about the situation, is that the official language in Madagascar used to be mainly French, and so books in school used to be in French, it was switched to Malagasy (the native language) in schools. However, parts of the problem is that they didn't make enough learning material or books for children in the native language, which is partly what this project aims to correct.

I like the pink dress. It's cute.
