Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, and 50% of the population there lives on less than $1.25 per day. Over 80% of students drop out of school after 6th grade because they can’t afford to continue their education.
We’re trying to change that.
Artists for Peace and Justice encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty around the world. Our immediate goal is to serve the poorest communities in Haiti with programs in education, healthcare, and dignity.
We are committed to long-term, sustainable development in direct partnership with the Haitian people. Our model is simple: we believe in empowering local communities, fostering economic growth, and above all the power of education to change a nation.
If we raise the most funds in the #OperationGirl Challenge, we'll win the grand prize of $50,000. All funds raised from the #OperationGirl challenge will support girls' scholarships in Haiti.
Please give the gift of a donation to APJ and the girl students of Haiti this year. It's easy. Just click the big Donate Button to the right. Or, go one step further and click the big "Fundraise for This Campaign" button and fundraise with us. You'll get your own fundraising page to share with your friends and family.
We keep our promises and we deliver. We are making sure that the dreams of our girls who are students in Haiti will come true.
