Education & Outreach

Doing What’s Needed

Unlike most of Haiti, nearly 100% of the school age children in Fond-des-Blancs go to school. The concept of beginning a child’s education at age three to five years old began when HCDF began encouraging preschool age children in the community to attend their school. Nearly 30 years later, the entire educational philosophy of the community has changed. Today, it is not uncommon for a child in Fond-des-Blancs to graduate from high school, and several are going onto a university education thanks to the support made available through HCDF contributor donations.
