St. Alphonse de Cadet Primary School
Trou Chou Chou, Haiti
In Haiti, all public and private schools charge tuition, and so the poor a barred from education. In an area as destitute as Trou ChouChou where parents can’t pay to tuition, it is often impossible for communities to pay salaries to attract and retain teachers. Inability to attend school is especially hard on the many Trou ChouChou children who are undernourished or malnourished, as the daily meal provided at school is more than just a supplement - it is often the only meal a child will receive during the day!
HMVF is proud to say that we partnered with Help Hayti in creating St Alphonse de Cadet primary school in Trou ChouChou. We assist in the development of and have devised a plan to provide nourishing food to the school via the beginning of an intergenerational community garden. 185 students are enrolled in St Alphonse de Cadet classes.
