Last January, Avanascar Initiative organized a workshop which brought together 50 Girl Guides from Antsirabe, Madagascar to share their skills and knowledge on how and what should be done to nurture your inner talent and acquire new ones as well. More pictures to follow…

Tomorrow, we will be celebrating the World Humanitarian Day all over the globe. This is a day where you and I are expected to take action to make change (even little) in others life. The theme chosen for this year is “I WAS HERE”, a track of the well-known singer Beyonce.
If you are wondering what shall be done, just follow these links:
As for myself, I will keep track of my goals: helping young women to reach their potential.
Here is a simple example: share your knowledge…But do not expect immediate results…Be patient…After some time, you will see how much they have grown with the “little” impact you did in their lives….At that time, you could say I WAS HERE.
But remember, do not wait for such an event to come to make a commitment, everyday you stand a chance to help your peers in many different ways.
…but I don’t mind. I see myself helping other young women to discover their potential in the future. But why not, I can even start it now, with my own resources. Whoever read this post, do not hide the gift/talent you have, use it to reach others, most probably it will make an impact in their life, soon or later….Myself, I thank Baden Powell and his wife to found Scouting and Girl guides. Without that vibrant and networking movement, I don’t think I would have managed to survive and encounter all the challenges that had happened in my life so far.
So my point is, SCOUT or not, share your knowledge. There is no need to work hard or earn a degree if you will just keep it for yourself. And remember: “Scouting is a potential ingredient of the menu called success”…Avana Kanty.
Well, apart from being the African Day, today has been one of the most glorious day for Astronomers in South Africa and all over Africa. The final decision has been made, with South Africa and its african partners (including Madagascar) chosen to be the preferred site to host the Square Kilometre Array, a radio telescope that will have a total collecting area of approximately one square kilometre square. However, the receivers of the giant telescope will be split between the African and Australian teams. Two third of the receivers will be located in our homeland !!!
This great achievement prove our ability to do science in Africa, as many people believed it would never happen. But now, here we are!!! May the SKA will be completed successfully as it will probe deeper the relics from the Big Bang and all the other exciting topics in science.

It has been more than 4 years, I was hesitating wether I should have my own blog or not. Today, I made up my mind, and here we are
I hope that through this blog, I will be able to share my skills and learn new stuffs from the bloggers. And even more, to invite you in my “avanascar world” where science, scouting and other areas are used to motivate young women from Madagascar to make their dreams come true despite all the challenges they are facing.
Enjoy the “avanascar world” and do not hesitate to visit anytime soon or leave any comment. You are always welcome
