I graduated from UC Berkeley in Political Science and French and I am now studying for the LSAT. Because I am still planing to become the lawyer of the people and work to make the world a better place, and eventually lead Haiti to a different path.

In the meantime, I just got accepted at Science Po, a political science institution in Paris for the coming Fall semester. I am scheduled to be in Paris by the second week of August but I am still not fully ready financially, although I already cover most of the fees. That's why I started this gofundme campaign and I am asking for your help. Please see more about me and the purpose of my plans and studies at the link bellow. Your help will be greatly appreciated and forever remembered. We will be in touch soon.

Spread the message, please! This month of July we must raise the rest of the tuition for the 170 children we sponsor to attend school in the one of the poorest sections of Port-au-Prince.

170 children: $9,000 to finish year #2; $2,000 to start next year, #3 (plus Indiegogo fees) = $12,000. Keep them from the streets!

UNICEF Haiti365 - Be Their Voice

You can listen to these very short videos. I wonder if the children will have access to the responses. You can view the page in Kreyol, as well; see flag in top right.

Haiti's children are eager to lead their country forward. UNICEF believes they must be central to Haiti's recovery. We will not rest until ZERO children are sleeping in tents, drinking unclean water or unable to attend school. Our world can be a loud place, and children can get lost in that noise. ...

Tom Luce, a member of our St. Columba Haiti Committee, is traveling to Haiti on Monday. Luggage these days is very limited, but we want to send something down to the children in the schools, so we are collecting new pencils and tiny plastic sharpeners (so they don't have to use razor blades to sharpen their pencils). Please bring them to St. Columba by Sunday if you have any to donate.

Thanks so much!
