Hand in Hand for Haiti

Torrance, CA, United States, 1580 Francisco Street 90501 - United States


"The most important investment in the field of private education outside of Port-au-Prince in the past 30 years."

French Ambassador, Monsieur Didier le Bret



What we do?

Hand in Hand for Haiti is a collective response to the humanitarian crisis in Haiti following the catastrophic earthquake that hit the country on January 12, 2010.

The project set out to build a sustainable school complex for the neediest children of the city of Saint Marc. After generating extraordinary support from the travel retail industry the world-class educational facility, Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable, opened its doors on October 3, 2011.

The hurricane-proof, anti-seismic, sustainable school complex offers accessible education from pre-school to secondary school, in Saint-Marc, Haiti, an area of great need.

Why the need for world-class education?

The devastation in Haiti has acted as a clarion call for international action and assistance. Leaders in the industry are answering the call, responding with compassion and a bold long-term strategy for the future of Haiti.

Education is the single most important determinant of an individual's potential to escape poverty in Haiti. High quality education in a world-class school is key to the growth, strength and long-term recovery of Haiti and vital to the spirit and independence of its people. Working as partners with the local government in the Commune of Saint-Marc, Hand in Hand for Haiti is embarking on an ambitious and essential plan to finance, build and operate a landmark school that will be accessible to all local children and provide excellence at every level of education.
