Our Client

Founded by a fellow MIM student, Miriam Agüero, Meraki Smile School is no ordinary school. It is the first institution in Africa to offer its students the International Baccalaureate(IB) for free. This non-profit school is located in the slum of the capital city of Madagascar, Antananarivo. Meraki Smile School has developed a socio-educational project for vulnerable 6-year-old kids focusing on three key areas: access to high-quality education, fight against child labour and gender inequality, healthcare, and nutritional support. 

Meraki Smile School believes that education should be fun and aims for every kid that comes to the school should come with a smile. Their mission is to break the cycle of poverty through quality education.
