THE STORY:

In early January, a small group of Skidmore College faculty and staff travelled to Haiti for one week to build and further connections between the College and several organizations in Port-au-Prince and Fondwa. Since the catastrophic earthquake on January 12, 2010, followed by a persistent cholera epidemic which continues to this day, Skidmore faculty, staff, and students have engaged in multiple activities to support relief to Haiti’s residents and also to build ties with the University of Fondwa (UNIF), located in the community of Tom Gato, a rural and mountainous area two hours south and west of Port-au-Prince, which specializes in agricultural sciences and provides opportunities for students to study micro-business, foreign languages, and agronomy.

The goal of this rural university is to empower local students with skills to be able to remain in their rural communities to bring back the economic base and help Haiti move forward.
