The Power of Education Foundation (PEF) School in Fontamara, Haiti educates over 235 students from Kindergarden to 9th grade. Our school provides free access to high quality education, primary medical care and daily food support to students who otherwise would have no access to an education. The public school system in Haiti is currently unable to provide children with access to education and private schools are far too expensive for a majority of families in the area. PEF families are highly engaged with the school staff. They attend bimonthly parent-teacher meetings and have been involved in focus groups to help shape the future of the school.
PEF volunteers fundraise to support the school, feeding program, teacher training and other educational initiatives through a child sponsorship program and various events.
