THE STORY:

I am a consultant who has advised more than 30 charitable organizations in several states of the U.S. and in foreign countries. My family has donated to a number of these organizations as well. One the most effective organizations that we have assisted is COCINA which helps a highly - effective school, health clinic and other programs in Northeast Haiti. The founder of this organization, Hugues Bastien, was selected a Finalist from among 435 nominees from around the world by the Atlanta - based Epoch Missions Gala, an "academy awards" style recognition for people in humanitarian service.

We have committed to personally match donated funds, dollar for dollar, to sponsor a WHOLE CLASS OF ELEMENTARY STUDENTS! The overall goal is $4,500. This amount will support the total yearly cost of an excellent education for 25-30 students, including the cost of a daily nutritious lunch. It will help their school, Institution Univers, to maintain its reputation as a Top Ten School of Haiti, where nearly 100% of pupils pass the national education exams, and many graduates are winning competitive scholarships and attending colleges and universities.
