E-louise is from Andavadoaka, and benefited from the Blue Ventures scholarship programme from primary to high school.
During her high school years, E-louise lived in Morombe, a village 40 km from Andavadoaka, where she spent two years as president of the Girls Club and as vice president of the Environmental Club. These two positions taught her a lot about leadership, and gave her experience in organising, planning and implementing group projects.
In 2016, Blue Ventures sent E-louise to a two-month training camp in Fianarantsoa with Projet Jeune Leader, where she was able to strengthen her understanding of sexual and reproductive health, puberty, and youth leadership. Since then she’s been integrating these topics into her work with Blue Ventures, introducing fun and innovative ways of learning about sexual and reproductive health to the clubs that she leads.
She was a trainee in the Girl’s Club Education, Saturday School and Swimming Club program in 2017-2018. It is natural, therefore, that Elouise joined the education team in January 2019 as an Education Technician. She enjoys working with young people and children and sharing their personal experience with them, and she is also passionate about dance.
