William RANDRIAMIARINAMfM Country Representative & Mary’s Meals Programme Manager

Hello, I am William Randriamiarina. I graduated in private management from Antananarivo University – Madagascar.  I co-founded the Miarintsoa Association AMI in 2000 and have more than 20 years of experience in the management of development projects and in the WASH sector.

AMI has been representing MFM in Madagascar since 2016.  The mission and vision of MFM and AMI for Madagascar perfectly match together.  I am therefore happy to contribute into the development of MfM in Madagascar so that this organization becomes a leader in its interventions’ area of and for the benefit of the Malagasy population.

What I love about working for MfM is the openness and overwhelming understanding of the MFM trustees and executive team, also the donors and partners who support our projects.  It becomes therefore easy to frame our projects to meet the real needs of the Malagasy population.  On the other hand, we have the amazing dedication of our implementing partners in the field.

My passion is to work for the socio-economic development of Malagasy people.  My hope is that MFM expands its actions to reach as more communities as possible, while contributing into the preservation of the environment.  Referring to a Malagasy adage “tao-trano tsy efan’ny irery”, meaning, no one can build a house alone, Madagascar needs a dedicated partner like MFM and we, AMI, stand steady to achieve this common vision of lifting Madagascar out of poverty.

Hello, I am Mbola.  I studied at the Institut Supérieur Saint Michel Itaosy Antananarivo and have a professional bachelor’s degree in entrepreneurship management.  I joined Miarintsoa Association in 2008 and held the position of Assistant to the Director of Operations since 2010 to date.

What I like about working for MfM is the close relationship with the partners.  During the thirty six years of presence in Madagascar, MfM has been able to establish a strong built-in trust and family relationship with its implementing partners and this exceptional relationship considerably facilitates the supervision and implementation of projects in the field.

MfM’s vision is also so relevant for Madagascar.  I wish to bring a positive contribution to the realization of this vision, for the benefit of the most vulnerable Malagasy population.
