Haitian Educational Initiatives – Susan Whitcomb presenting
HEI is a 501c3 based in Fairfield and partners with two Haitian community groups in Jacmel. Together they provide scholarship, feeding, after school, job training and summer camp programs for 200+ children. One of the partners, Fondation Jean Bellande Joseph, also runs a preschool at their rural center and that is the program which recently received a DMG check from Fairfield Rotary. Because of their contacts on the ground, HEI was able to provide emergency food kits for 2600 people after Hurricane Matthew. HEI has been operating since 2010.
