our mission isn’t just about building schools
By providing a preferential option for the poor in education, we will eradicate extreme poverty in Haiti and build a foundation for further economic development and prosperity.
Even before the 2010 earthquake and Hurricane Matthew in 2016, Haiti has suffered from immense corruption, lack of employment opportunities, scarcity in skilled labor, and severe brain drain. By some measures, Haiti’s economy has had negative economic growth since the 1960s.
We believe in sustainable and affordable schools that provide more than just a basic education. Success is dependent on marketable skills from well-trained faculty and staff and also the provision of modern services like healthcare and nutrition.
How we are different.
Despite the development of many new ideas to solve poverty and the social issues that arise with its existence, it still runs rampant in places like Haiti. Our approach to prevent youth from falling into the trap of poverty is unlike almost any other, and it is working.
Haiti has a history of being a black hole for charities. Part of it has been ineffective projects that don’t actually alleviate and eliminate poverty. Part of it is lack of strategy. We’re going to change that.
