Our Mission

To support local Haitian organizations in addressing Haiti's education crisis.  Together, our goal is to develop successful, sustainable, and replicable solutions to the problems of illiteracy and low school completion rates in Jacmel, Haiti.

Our Projects

Despite abject poverty, parents are expected to pay fees for their children to attend school.  HEI provides scholarships for tuition and school supplies to make education possible for these children.  We support the growth and development of these students through after-school tutoring, vocational training, summer camp and nutrition. Within our program, 95% of our students are promoted to the next grade.



HEI's first high school graduate is now a college freshman!

We are so proud of Mika and wish her continued success.
