In the southwest of Madagascar, the Mahafaly plateau is an extremely arid land. Here, the rains fall only a few times a year. In these very difficult living conditions, the inhabitants of the small village of Ampotaka found a unique solution to store water.


Allow the public to discover Madagascar, the baobabs, the inhabitants of the Ampotaka region and their unique practice of using baobabs to store water. Raising awareness on the scarcity of water, on the links between man and nature.
