Haitian Educational Initiatives is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt organization based in Fairfield, CT. Founded in 2010 by Susan Whitcomb, Ph.D., we partner with Haitian-led community groups in the greater Jacmel area to address the lack of access to education. Together we serve 152 children from severely impoverished families with scholarship, food, and job training programs. Scholarships include tuition fees, uniforms, shoes, backpacks, books and school supplies. Our students are enrolled in grades K-13 in 51 local schools.
