Since 2000, our scholarship program has been providing opportunities for underprivileged students in the south of Haiti to receive an education that would have otherwise been out of their reach. We believe that education is the key to breaking the cycle of poverty and creating a brighter future for Haiti.

Over the years, our scholarship program has supported over 3,000 students, many of whom have gone on to become lawyers, doctors, nurses, and other professionals who are making a difference in their communities. Our scholarship recipients come from some of the most disadvantaged backgrounds, and without the support of our program, they would not have been able to afford the cost of tuition, books, and other educational expenses.

One of our scholarship recipients and a patient of our medical missions, Woodle Cleona, graduated as a nurse and is now looking to volunteer at Klinik Fonfred. Woodlee is passionate about giving back to her community and using her skills to help those in need, and she credits our scholarship program with helping her achieve her dream of becoming a nurse.

During the political unrest in Haiti, our scholarship program was more important than ever. With schools closed and families struggling to make ends meet, many students were at risk of dropping out of school. But thanks to the support of our donors, we were able to provide scholarships to 175 students this year, helping to ensure that they can continue their education and build a brighter future for themselves and their families.

Our scholarship program is more than just financial support - it's an investment in the future of Haiti. By providing opportunities for education, we are helping to create a generation of leaders who are equipped with the skills and knowledge to drive positive change in their communities.

We are proud of the impact our scholarship program has had over the years, and we are grateful for the support of our donors who make it all possible. Thank you for your continued support and for believing in the power of education to transform lives.

In August 2021, a devastating earthquake struck the South of Haiti, leaving thousands of families without homes, food, or clean water. The Gaskov Clerge Foundation (GCF) was one of the first organizations on the ground to provide much-needed disaster relief to the earthquake victims. Through the generosity of 511 donors, GCF was able to raise $371,166 for the relief efforts.

Through the tireless efforts of GCF and its partners, 1,200 families received food, water, and hygiene kits, helping to meet their most basic needs. New Jersey Women for Haiti helped raise $12,000 through their local church for the food kits. CLÉ Haitian Sisterhood prepared over 50 hygiene kits that were distributed to young girls in Anse-du-Nord, Haiti. The Bainet Foundation sent a truck of fresh bread to GCF from Bainet which was distributed to multiple camps in Les Cayes.

One of the biggest challenges in the aftermath of the earthquake was the destruction of many healthcare facilities in the region. GCF was instrumental in providing medical relief to those who needed it most, partnering with organizations like Hope Foundation for Hope Health in Haiti (FHHH), Mathew28, NJ4Haiti, and HANA of Greater NY to ensure that those impacted by the earthquake received the medical care they required. 7,942 patients received medical relief through 41 mobile clinics.

But GCF's work in Haiti did not end there. Thanks to the fundraising efforts of individuals like Catherine Desmarattes (KITKAT) and Guy Webern Guerrier (Guywewe), GCF was able to purchase and is finishing the construction of water distribution systems in Anse-Du-Nord, Garande Cayemite, Pestel, Grande-Anse. The community at Anse-Du-Nord was consuming water from a dirty hole. This effort will pump water into a distribution network for the communities, helping to improve health outcomes and quality of life.

How can you help?

During times of disaster, our vehicle plays a big part in providing medical relief around Haiti through mobile clinics. Currently, our vehicle is no longer reliable and needs repair multiple times a week. By November 28th, Giving Tuesday, GCF is trying to raise $30,000 so we can invest in reliable transportation that we need.
