IAPW has funded the construction of 6 schools in Haiti, a country where more than half of the population is illiterate and 50% of children are not enrolled in school. Our first school Haiti, located in Rousseau, was built in 2010 and is home to over 350 students, 43% of which are girls. The school is also host to a Community Education Program in the evenings, providing instruction to adult members of the community.

Rousseau, Haiti

Rousseau, Haiti

The community of Rousseau is a small village located in southern Haiti. Most of the 1300 people who live in the community survive through subsistence farming and small remittances sent home from family members living abroad in the United States. Prior to construction, 204 children were enrolled in school in Rousseau. There weren’t any classrooms suitable for learning & some classes were held in a makeshift structure built by the community more than 5 years ago.
