Free public education is something most of us take for granted. But in Haiti, the poorest country in the
western hemisphere, private schools are the only schools and very few families can afford even the most modest
The Haiti Education Foundation (HEF) is the result of one woman's effort to make a difference in the lives
of the children of Haiti.
In a nation as devastated as Haiti, it is difficult to decide where to begin to offer help. But education
is the one gift that multiplies in the sharing.
For barely more than pocket change, you can help a Haitian girl or boy read, write, master
a trade, and study God's Word. Your gift will purchase hope for a child, a family, a school, a village and a country.
HEF changes the life of every child who participates. With your help in keeping these schools open, the history
of Haiti will be changed!

Disaster in Haiti!
Dear HEF Friends,
Pere Soner, our new priest in charge of Ascension Parish, emailed the following information to us. I have since received a phone call from Ancy confirming damages of additional schools along the southern coast near Jacmel. Ancy requested the prayers of all. He said that the flooding is very dangerous and that many Haitians have died. Please pass the word of this hardship. We have established a Disaster Fund to help in the cleanup efforts.
Blessings and Peace,
My greetings to you, hoping this finds you all well even here we're surviving from the storm problems.
As you may hear, all the south, southeast and south-west are mostly damaged by this storm. I have to share to you partial information about the damages we get at our schools.
Right now it is still raining a lot, the rivers are very big and dangerous, but fortunately and until now we do not lost any church member or children. However I receive some phone calls from community' leaders and principals letting me know as following:
- The roof of the school "incarnation of Saurel" is down completely, it concerns both sections the primary and kindergarten.
- At Grandou, the school "Epiphany" is almost completely destroyed.
- At Denard, the school of Saint Jacques that we have recently fixed, lost completely their two tents and materials.
- The principal of St Luc calls me to inform about damages, but not clear on the nature of the problems, when I get clear information I will let you know.
- I receive a call from the principal of St Philippe and Saint Jacques of Petite Riviere with many difficulties to keep talking because the wind, I'm sure that his school gets damaged too.
- The St Cyprian school of Labiche is also affected seriously .
The situation is much more complicated because they lost their materials too like blackboards, books and copybooks, etc.
Let’s stay in touch!
