Education Haiti is an organization founded to help talented Haitian students achieve their full potential.
Our programs strives to bring Haitian students closer to the colleges of their dreams. Here are some of the great successes we have achieved over the last few years.
Friends of Hope International, Inc was founded by Esteban Almonte, Carmen L. Fernandez & Liony Batista. Having worked in humanitarian disaster relief, project development and the collaboration of sustainable projects in Latin America and the Caribbean, Mr. Batista, Mrs. Fernandez & Mr. Almonte felt the need to work independently with a group of like-minded individuals to help empower others to forge their way out of poverty.
Our organization has been created to work with vulnerable and at-risk youth in Latin America and the Carribean; provide food asistance to impoverished communities and create self-sustainable animal husbandry, agricutlure and technical projects which would provide a source of income and empower people to move forward.

In 2003, Wade McGuinn, who owns McGuinn Holdings, a construction management company in Lexington, South Carolina, embarked on a mission trip to Jeremie, Haiti and it was there he discovered his life’s calling. In 2005, while in Jeremie, he was led to the home of a local Haitian, Jean Renal Alexander, who was caring for 8 abandoned children in his home when he was barely able to care for himself. When Wade returned home, he and his wife Janet were compelled to help. As such, Haiti Children Project was founded. Both McGuinns currently serve on Haiti Children Project’s Board, speak to groups throughout the country and lead many discovery trips to Haiti throughout the year for potential donors. The McGuinns believe that Haiti Children Project’s Next Generation Program is their calling in life and they continue to work tirelessly to ensure that Haiti Children Project is fully endowed in time for their impending retirement.
Service is a nice concept but we often use the word without any true allegiance to what the Lord expects of his servants. The following are ideas that fit quite nicely with our theology of Christian Community Development, this special time of year when we celebrate the offering of Christ as the Servant who would save the world.
1. A servant does not have a message of his own. He is the mouthpiece of His Master. Just as an ambassador is expected to promote the views of his country and government, so also the servant of God is His representative on earth and His message is Reconciliation as Paul puts it, ‘you are ambassadors of reconciliation. Christ’s birth, life, death, and resurrection solidified that message.
2. A servant does not have a country of his own. He is only a pilgrim in a foreign land until His Master calls him home or to another destination. As a servant of God, where He calls us is where we need to be. Relocation is the mind of Christ that we should have during our pilgrimage here on earth. He left the splendor of heaven for the lowest possible state of human existence. None of us could ever match such a sacrifice.
3. A servant does not have any possessions of his own. He is only the manager of His Master’s resources. This could be the best of both worlds if we start on the right footing. It is always such fun to spend someone else’s money.
This is the opportunity to return unto the Lord what is rightfully his (The earth is the Lord’s and all who live in it) and at the same time be able to spend it for the aggrandizement of his kingdom here on earth. This is the very essence of Redistribution
Our mission is to help end poverty in Haïti by funding post-secondary education through fully subsidized scholarships to universities in Haïti.
Haïti College Fund (HCF) was established in 2005 to overcome the never-ending cycle of poverty and premature death in Haïti by addressing a core problem: lack of access to higher education.
A university education in Haïti serves two important outcomes.
✦ Ending dependency with its own indigenous class of professionals: Haïti will become less reliant on outside expertise to solve its many problems.
✦ Encouraging community development through application of acquired skills: HCF graduates will promote economic development and effect long-lasting improvements.
Students who are recipients of financial assistance from HCF are selected based on merit and need. Additionally, HCF provides scholarship applicants with a template for creating a business plan (updated annually) wherein they outline how they will use their education to provide for themselves and their local communities after graduation.
To date, HCF has supported eight students who have completed their university educations—three physicians, a nurse, an agronomist, a financial accountant, a veterinarian, and a business major who is operating a secondary school. In addition, two more students are in school now studying civil engineering and computer science. A better future for Haïti is already happening today.
HCF is an all-volunteer 501(c)(3) charitable organization. Although HCF pays some administrative expenses, the vast preponderance of the moneys we collect goes directly to benefit our scholarship recipients. They pledge to return to their home communities after graduation to apply their newfound skills and support development at the local level.

Isemonde Joseph grew up in Haiti’s notorious Cité Soleil slum and was the top girl in her high school class. In 1997, shortly after she graduated, she asked her former teacher, Conor Bohan, for $30 to register for secretarial school. Conor encouraged Isemonde to pursue her dream of studying medicine and paid for her first year’s tuition and books. Realizing that many high school graduates never reached their potential due to extreme poverty, Conor began matching other deserving students with sponsors and HELP was born.
From 1998 to 2004, HELP operated without salaried employees or a fixed address. We moved into our first Student Center in 2004 with 40 students. By 2010 that number had risen to 110 before the January 12th earthquake seriously injured 40% of our staff and destroyed the Center, forcing us to move into a new building in July 2010.
At first, HELP scholarships covered only tuition and books. Over the years we expanded our support to assist students from outside the capital who need housing, students who were not able to get enough to eat at home, or who could not afford the $1 daily bus fare. We now recruit nationwide and provide students with a complete range of services including stipends, housing, academic counseling, language classes and a leadership curriculum, computer training, library access, internships, and career services.
Dr. Isemonde received her MD degree in 2005 and immediately found work as a staff physician at the renowned Gheskio Center in Port-au-Prince. Her starting annual salary was $14,500.
HELP has graduated more than 110 students to date, more than 95% of whom are either employed or pursuing graduate studies.
