Look at these happy faces!! We visited 2 recent moms and they love seeing  themselves in pictures. Corregated wall houses with thatched roofing open sewage and waste. Outdoor cooking on small Hibachi like stoves. Shared family caretakers and community living. Over my shoulder is the home of the priest, this alley way neighborhood is right behind the church of Ankilifaly, Toliara.

A beautiful ocean view

While a lovely view is afforded, the stench is overwhelming and the flies are abundant. Ox carts carry people across the fetid mud flats to the awaiting boats. While we waited for service in a local business, I was struck by a poster with the universal NO sign of a circle struck thru the center stating (in Malgasy) that child trafficking is not allowed.
