Haiti

haiti_2haiti_8The LWCCF involvement in Haiti began in 2010 when director, Sherry Fine, board member Barbara Livieratos, and former board member Andrea Porcu, came together to assist in relief efforts following that country’s devastating earthquake.  While some progress has been made in reconstruction since the earthquake and the subsequent cholera epidemic, needs for adequate shelter, clean water, nutrition, health care, and education remain staggering. LWCCF has offered assistance to a number of orphanages and educational projects and is currently focusing on two.

 

 

haiti_1Eagle Kindergarten prepares young students for school in the southern coastal town of Jacmel. Fanel Leme, the kindergarten’s director, built the school with his own and donated funds in 2013. The children at Eagle Kindergarten, who would otherwise not be in school, are getting a solid foundation as they begin their education.  LWCCF assists in the construction of a kitchen and additional rooms to the school, and with books and other instructional materials.

haiti_5The SAKALA Project is located in the notorious slum of Cite Soleil in Port au Prince. Started in 2006, SAKALA blends sports with your leadership education, after-school activities, gardening, community development, and peace education in a safe environment to empower youth. The focus of the project is to divert young tent city residents from the influence of gangs by offering a safe place for them to experience positive and peaceful alternatives. SAKALA is staffed by a determined team of young men and women dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children and ultimately to improving their country.
