The French charity SOS Enfants has been deploying educational, training and healthcare development programs in Africa, Haiti and Nepal for over 35 years. SOS Enfants also provides disaster relief.
Initiative supported: Rebuilding a school canteen following the 2010 earthquake in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
The aim is to provide students at the St Alphonse school with a daily hot meal.
Following the earthquake, which destroyed two-thirds of the school, the establishment has since been rebuilt, with the backing of a variety of supporters. But it still lacks a dedicated building for meals.
The Foundation’s donation will fund the construction of the school canteen’s kitchen as well as the renovation and security of the children’s mess hall.
Social impact: 650 primary-to-high-school children will benefit from the new infrastructures and will receive meals several times a week.
