People help people. People should be enabled to help other people. This is the primary purpose of the AiNA Soa association. AiNA Soa focuses on training and supports people who train and help people to help themselves. The association sees itself in the sense of the basics as a Christian development and project work community in the service of Madagascar. AiNA Soa means: Precious life.
By training Samaritans in the villages of Madagascar, the health care at the community level is to be significantly improved. The aim is to create an independent Malagasy organisation that guarantees medical care at the grassroots level. At the moment the focus is on the health sector. Interventions in the areas of water, food and self-sufficiency are not excluded.
The association is oriented towards the basic Christian values. Life is valuable. This value should be evident in all references within the work of AiNA Soa. This includes living an open culture of mistakes, according to the motto: “Mistakes happen, but not to improve on them is unwise”. Attention is also paid to gender justice. Women and men are equal.
This is anchored in the statutes at association level. Based on the aims of the association, training should take place in all areas of work. Initially, the management level will be kept lean, but this will be expanded with the appointment of Malagasy staff. The management structure must adapt to the local conditions and is therefore not yet fixed at the moment.
They are the key to the success of the AiNA Soa association and see themselves as part of a whole. They are to be used according to their abilities and development potential. The Malagasy employees are paid a fee in accordance with the customary rates in the country.
Now Glory be to God! By his mighty power at work within us, he is able to accomplish infinitely more than we would ever dare to ask or hope. Ephesians 3:20
