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.
