Education in Haiti

Haitian Education and Leadership Program (H.E.L.P.)

Donate to help transform lives


In a country filled with sickness and crippling poverty, potential leaders are born but may never be able to use their God-given gifts and talents because they cannot afford a higher education.

There are two main benefits from helping these young people excel by affording them an opportunity for an education: These poor men and women break free from the cycle of poverty and are equipped to become future leaders in Haiti. This project sponsors scholarships for bright but impoverished high school students, allowing them to attend the University of Notre Dame, Haiti. Please help these deserving young adults achieve their full potential and fill the need for Catholic leaders in Haiti.
