Act for Haiti will soon be celebrating 15 years of continuous success in changing Children’s life for the better.
It all started when the “Communaute des Laiques Catholiques de Haiti” (CLCH) was founded under the direction of Madame Claudette Leconte, Haitian, in March 1997. CLCH was to support the poorest communities of Haiti and in 2001, opened a small temporary school with 24 children in the most deprived shantytown of the country. A benefactor noticed the positive impact of such program and decided to strongly support the organisation by donating a land in Vaudreuil, in the suburb of Cap-Haitien where the site is today. The American Foundation “Food for the poor” financed the construction of a school complex and a home for orphans & tutors.
Today, Act for Haiti comprises 423 children from age 2 to 25.
