Education is the top priorities of APF : We started with our Educational Program in 1993 with College Fraternite St. Antoine which has : Kindergarten, Elementary and High School. This School has about 750 students. Our school was destroyed during the Earthquake in 2010. We have been blessed by having 4 organizations which helped us to rebuild part of this School : Including Family Health Ministries, JDC( Jewish Distribution Center via Heart-To-Heart International), Partners-In Progress ( PIP) and Fonkoze. All together, in 2011- 2013 they have contributed US $ 600,000.00 out of US $ 1M2 needed. That has helped us to build half of this School Construction Project. In 2019, we are still looking for the remaining part of US $ 600.00 in order to finish with the School Construction Project. If you want to join us also in this project, please let us know about it and we will send more information to you. Thanks a lot in advance for willing to get involved with us.
In 2004 we opened the University of Fondwa ( UFondwa/ UNIF) for all of the 572 Rural Communities in Haiti. Its mission is : To educate young Haitians to create wealth in their home communities. We want to provide to each community of Haiti, a team of three specialist to work permanently with them. We have three schools : Agronomy, Veterinarian-Medicine and Business Management. Actually The University of Fondwa is a working University in rural : we link the work with the academic program. The students work two days during the week, one week out of two during the Breaks ( Christmas & Easter) and work during the entire Summer ( July and August). They do have 2 weeks of vacation from September 1rst. to September 14. This is a USA model of Working College that we are trying to replicate in Haiti, like Ozarks College, Berea College and Warren-Wilson College.
But actually, the University of Fondwa is operating in Sea Containers. We are looking for funds to build our UFondwa Campus. We are blessed to we have UFondwa USA which is helping us to support the teachers. We do need more resources to build the UFondwa Campus and to find also groups or individuals who want to sponsor our Rural Communities in Haiti by paying for three students :2 girls and 1 boy, to come to study at the University of Fondwa. If you want to join us in this project, please let us know about it and we will send more information to you. Thanks a lot in advance for willing to get involved with us.
