"Education makes such a difference to a lifetime, a family, and a community. Best to the students!"
Please watch Father Joseph Philippe explain his 3Legs vision to uplift rural Haitian communities in the brief video on this page. We hope you find this as inspiring as we do.
We are asking a few of our key friends to become Raising Haiti fundraising advocates, to rally their family, friends, and networks to support our work. By becoming a fundraiser for Raising Haiti Foundation (Asosysasyon Peyizan Fondwa USA, Inc), you will enable 10 students to attend another year at University of Fondwa in rural Haiti, and you'll help your friends feel good about doing good. We need $50,000 to do this. Thankfully, we have a wonderful offer from the Julian Grace Foundation to match every dollar up to $25,000 so if we can raise $25,000 with this campaign, those 10 kids will be able to attend university again this year.
Starting a fundraiser is easy to do, and it's fun. We'll give you all the tools you need to make a difference. The students promise to return to their home communities after they graduate, working with local leaders to sustainably improve livelihoods. So, with your help, the students will benefit, the rural Haitian communities will benefit, and eventually the whole country will benefit. How cool is that? We realize that there are many worthwhile causes; there are so many needs in the world, especially with the recent hurricanes. This fundraiser is different: it promotes long-term development for the people of Haiti, the poorest country in our hemisphere. We appreciate your help.
