Mission Haiti Initiative: Following the earthquake that devastated Haiti in January 2010, the Sisters of St. Joseph in the United States and Canada partnered with Mission Haiti and pledged to help re-build the island and lives of its people by investing in the education of Haiti’s most vulnerable citizens – its girls.
The Sisters pledged more than $325,000.00 over ten years to:
- support the education of 10 Haitian girls from primary through secondary school at schools run by the Sisters of the Company of Jesus in Leogane;
- provide three years of technical education for 10 girls;
- assist in the salaries and certification costs for teachers;
- provide partial financial assistance for rebuilding the College Coeur de Marie, which was destroyed in the 2010 earthquake.
