So as you know, I've been with this amazing organization, Artists for Peace & Justice (APJ) since this summer, building and running the largest free high school of its kind in the country, supporting the St. Luke family hospital, and providing a free college in film and technology in Jacmel. I'm so proud to be a part of doing something long-term and effective in Haiti, with an incredible group of people.
In Haiti, over 80% of students drop out of school after 6th grade because they can’t afford to continue their education. We're working to change that every day. And since so many of you on my list are Haitian, let's do something GREAT for Haiti and the thousands of students and families APJ serves. Unlike a great many orgs that shall remain nameless, we're not bringing people in from overseas and then leaving. Our teachers are Haitian, our doctors are Haitian, and we're not going anywhere.
Artists for Peace and Justice encourages peace and social justice and addresses issues of poverty around the world. Our immediate goal is to serve the poorest communities in Haiti with programs in education, healthcare, and dignity.
We are committed to long-term, sustainable development in direct partnership with the Haitian people. Our model is simple: we believe in empowering local communities, fostering economic growth, and above all the power of education to change a nation.
I'd very much appreciate your support - every donation makes an impact! So please help support our efforts with a donation to APJ and the children of Haiti this holiday and help us win the CrowdRise Holiday Challenge!
Thanks so much for your support,
