We currently have a partnership with Lively Stone Academy to support the vision of feeding and educating children in the community. Nearly a third of the Haitian population is food insecure. Poverty and food insecurity have placed the highest burden on young children and women in terms of undernutrition and micronutrient deficiencies.
Malnourished children are more susceptible to disease and, as a result, less likely to perform well in school. Many parents struggle to pay school fees and provide enough food to feed their families.
Our partnership provides financial support to pay the teachers monthly and feed 150 children a hot meal throughout the school year. In January 2017, we installed a chlorinated water purification system.
