ABOUT LWCF'S SUPPORTED SITES IN Haiti
ABOUT THIS PROJECT
In Haiti, LWCF supports Aigle Kindergarten and the Sakala Trash to Treasure Project and recently launched a new family sponsorship program.
Eagle (Aigle) School is a preschool and elementary school in the southern coastal town of Jacmel. Fanel Leme, the school’s director, uses a sliding scale for tuition, and children who would otherwise not be in school are getting a solid foundation as they begin their education. LWCF has helped Eagle School with school supplies, teacher stipends, and educational materials.
SAKALA’s Trash to Treasure program is a youth initiative where participants make art from found objects. LWCF has provided support for this project as well as computers, sports equipment, and funds for educational materials.
