Your Guides to Madagascar: Sara LeHoullier and Maya Moore

Sara LeHoullier
Sara LeHoullier has made the terrifically long journey to Madagascar and back seven times and lived there for almost four years as a Peace Corps Volunteer, researcher, and traveler. She has trekked, biked, taken taxi-brousses, flown, and paddled from one tip of that great island to the other, having life-altering adventures and making unforgettable friends.

Maya Moore
Maya Moore first began her adventures in Madagascar in 2004 as a Peace Corps Volunteer trudging through mud, braving treacherous log bridges across rainforest streams, and growing her own rice. She and a group of fellow Madagascar-lovers recently founded the Maroantsetra Area Development Association (M.A.D.A.) whose mission is to provide educational and economic opportunities to communities in the Maroantsetra region.
