LA GONÂVE HAITI PARTNERS ANNUAL FUND 2020
Judette and her family (pictured above) illustrate the impact of La Gonâve Haiti Partners on the lives of three generations of women on the Haitian island of Gonâve.
When Grandmother was born, there was no school in her mountain community. Like most women, she and her daughter never learned to read and write. When granddaughter Judette (center) was born in 1993, US partners had joined with the Episcopal Church of Haiti to begin constructing schools and a healthcare system on la Gonâve. Judette attended an excellent Episcopal school close to home. Despite many hurdles, she completed her studies at St. Francois d’Assisi High School and is now in the 5th year of medical school in Port au Prince.
Judette exemplifies the life-changing potential that is unleashed when a child grows up with access to quality education and good healthcare.
Since 1989, La Gonâve Haiti Partners has worked in partnership with the people of la Gonâve to address issues of hunger, poverty, disease, and education. Ten Schools, built over the past 30 years, allow 1500 boys and girls equal access to K-12 education. Adult Literacy courses give older Haitians like Judette’s grandmother and mother a chance to learn to read. A primary care center houses a network of clinics to provide critical preventative and sick care. Economic development opportunities address the deadly issues of drought and poverty. A new Kid-to-Kid curriculum in primary schools teaches students how to raise and care for their family’s goat as a source of food and revenue. With the support of partners like you, the St. Francis and St. Croix parishes now employ 200 men and women on la Gonâve to provide these programs within their communities.
You are critical to continuing to make progress a reality.
