In 1924, a young French man, Jean Beigbeder, introduced the association as a branch of the French Protestant Mission. At the same time, he introduced the scouting movement. From 1978 to 1994, the YMCA stopped activities. In 2003, YMCA Madagascar joined the Africa Alliance of YMCAs and started a renewal process. YMCA Madagascar came into the Global Operating Plan Process in 2007. Its main programmes include: increasing the resilience to HIV/AIDS of orphans, vulnerable children and young people, supporting vulnerable children in Ankazomanga, supporting young farmers in Ambano and Itasy.
