Lisa Gustinelli visited in 2011, 2012 and 2014:

LisaGustinelliI traveled to Madagascar in the Spring of 2011 with “I Want To Learn English” (IWLE) and was deeply touched by what I saw and experienced. In the remote village of Toliara, the Malagasy people were living in extreme poverty yet were visibly thankful for even the smallest things in their lives. When I returned to Florida, I couldn’t get Madagascar out of my mind…or my heart and felt compelled to return.  – Lisa Gustinelli

Lisa Gustinelli holds a Master’s degree in Education and currently teaches Latin and French at Saint Andrew’s School in Boca Raton, Florida. She is a board member of IWLE. To donate or learn more about her mission please visit her website or  blog
