Country Director Madagascar

I am Rwandan but have lived in many places, including most recently Kenya. I know Madagascar well. In joining HoverAid, I am looking to deploy my gifts and experience in a manner that serves God and achieves lasting impact amongst those in real need. My message to our team is: “Together we are going to make this work and bring Glory to God’s work”.

Madagascar Team Security

Bolo is married with 2 Children and works as the base guard at Antananarivo


Driver and Mechanic

Tantely dreamt of travelling when he very young, so chose to be a driver. In 25 years there are few places in Madagascar where he has not been. As he traveled he noticed the beauty of the country, but also saw the problems of poverty. Then he met Peter van Buuren, who asked him and his legendary LandRover “The Black Pearl” to join the team.
Since then Tantely has built walls and bridges, dug wells, distributed anti-COVID supplies, and waded along crocodile-infested rivers. He hopes for big change in Madagascar, and this is what gives him the courage to continue
