BENEFITING: ST FRANCIS DE SALES FOUNDATION
A school such as St. Francis De Sales Academy is critical to Haiti’s educational development. 40% of Haiti’s population of over nine million people is school-age children. However, one in four children did not attend school prior to the catastrophic earthquake. UNICEF, estimated more than 3,000 schools buildings in the earthquake zone has been destroyed or damaged. In western Haiti alone 1,236 schools out of 4,716 were destroyed. The limited number of schools in this impoverished nation also meant that over 2.25 million people will drop out of school thereby closing the door of opportunity. We all know that education is the cornerstone of individual and community success and is fundamental to economic prosperity. So we must attempt to foster opportunities for education. Someone once said, “Education teaches human being the most essential survival tool. Resourcefulness: Resourceful people makes things happen.” Make a difference today
