HAITI-ED: Haitians for Advancing and Improving the Impact of Educational Development

SIUE Political Science student Westenior Valmera founded HAITI-ED, a non-profit organization whose mission is to support the children of Haiti by providing school supplies to those in need.  HAITI-ED’s vision is to develop strong partnerships with local and international organizations committed to creating a solid educational base for the children of Haiti.

Over this past summer, HAITI-ED distributed school kits to 24 children in the communal section of Grand-Boucan of Plaine-du-Nord. These children came from three different localities (Toussaint, Nan Bambou, and Karè) and were very pleased with this great initiative that HAITI-ED has begun. This activity was possible through a financial contribution from the four board members of HAITI-ED.

This year, HAITI-ED hoped to double the number of Haitian children helped. To reach this goal, they need your help.

By donating your gently used backpacks, you are helping HAITI-ED get valuable resources to children who otherwise may go without basic school supplies. You can help enable bright young minds to see a future where they can use their talents and skills.

“The outpouring of support has been overwhelming,​ a​s we have received over 130 backpacks​, more than doubling our goal to distribute to school children in Haiti.  Thanks to the generosity of the SIUE community, HAITI-ED is one step closer to helping the children of Haiti reach their educational goals,” Says Valmera.
