Individual and Family Development
Our private school in Gras, L'Academie Lazare, seeks marginalized children with potential and invests in their families throughout their educational career. Our educators and support staff minimize the common barriers that thwart learning and allow students to thrive through parent-teacher-student connections, quality teaching materials, well-trained and well-paid teachers who look forward to being in the classroom, and attendance to the overall well-being of every student.
Our public health campaigns engage the community through health promotion and prevention, allowing volunteer teams to realize health screenings, build latrines and water wells, and share essential health teachings with families and communities. As we build and deepen existing relationships with community leaders and pastors, our presence and influence increases.
Our social enterprise is only just beginning. And while the beginning is small with a modest line of Haitian leather products, the impact is already significant, and we are growing.
