About Mahajanga

In June 2016 we launched Iris Mahajanga as the second Iris Global location in Madagascar.

We are situated on the northwest coast of Madagascar and have a home for children who are orphaned or abandoned. It is our mission to raise them in the love of the Father.

We also aim to be a light to our community. Some of our neighbors live in bamboo huts on stilts and others are professionals who live in comfortable housing.  We love being in the middle of this diverse community and use every opportunity to demonstrate His love in partial ways to our friends and neighbors. 


Children’s Home:
We currently have nine children living with us. We have a beautiful home for orphaned or abandoned children and provide for all their physical, spiritual, and emotional needs. We are pleased to participate in Stop for the One’s sponsorship program and you can get more information here.

Village Feeding:
Once a week we feed up to 150 children. We have an amazing time of worship where we dance and sing with all of our hearts. Then we do a Bible drama, eat food, and play games. During the year we also do health education, distribute hygiene supplies, and work with parents to institute these practices at home. 

Kids’ Community:
This program is focused on the especially poor families in our community. Many are malnourished and unemployed when they first join the program. We do our best to provide a wide range of assistance, but are very intentional to build it around discipleship.  Through micro-finance projects, home building & repair, food distribution, education, and medical care we demonstrate Jesus and His love.
