In 2023, AJPER is planning to promote the use of basic 2 among households in rural villages within Fianarantsoa and in other key villages in the south of Madagascar.
We also will continue to produce our clay stoves for charcoal that we will sell at the local market of Anjoma, Fianarantsoa.
AJPER will help Biopellet and AJPER Innovation to set up for the development of the biopellet plant and the commercialization of the products. We also will produce the pyrolysis stoves.
Depending on the financial situation, we also plan to continue our annual tree planting in Andalamengoke and in Andrainjato Est in 2023.
To improve our internal revenue, AJPER is planning to open an outside cafeteria " AJPER Kafé" at our workshop in the campus of Ambalapaiso, Fianarantsoa. We have built the foundation of the place where we are going to serve our clients.
Along with this, we also would like to provide small printing service for the students of the Campus.
