Feed One Haiti
The Lola & Genise School was founded in February of 2017 and classes began in September of the same year. The school is registered with Haiti's Ministry of National Education and Vocational Training and teachers and educational staff are certified. Initially the Lola & Genise School opened educating pre-school through 1st grade, but with each year of growth the school is now educating children up to 3rd grade.
The school is located in Terre Rouge (meaning red earth) in a remote village in the mountains west of Jacmel. During the school day children are not only supplied an education, learning to read and write in French and other academic subjects but also fed a large meal and for some, this may be the only meal of the day. At Feed One Haiti, we believe that through education the ultimate goal can be attained; these educated children not only passing their newfound knowledge on to parents and elders of the village but also becoming leaders of their communities and country.
