Marking One Year in Haiti

Hello all,

We hope this finds you well!

Last month, EDV passed the one year in Haiti mark. It’s been an extraordinary year for our charity. To review all you’ve helped us accomplish in Haiti, we’ve prepared a one year report. Many of you have probably already received this report in our Newsletter, but for those of you who have not, we wanted to ensure that you had the chance to see all that you’ve made possible.

With your support, we’ve ensured that 308 Haitian school children have safe classrooms where they can learn, put 93 children back in school, and provided ongoing adult education for more than 100 adults. Not to mention all our work in Health Education and community support.

In the course of the past year, our work has directly touched 2,104 earthquake survivors. That work would not have been possible without each and every person who gave to EDV. Thank you so much for your generosity.

As we mark our one year anniversary in Haiti, we are also looking forward to more classroom construction, which will allow 200 more students to join the 308 already studying in EDV classrooms. We're also looking forward to providing scholarships to 100 children over the next three to five years, ensuring the orphanages we work with are sustainable, and extending a helping hand to community groups so that they can become self-sufficient.

The coming months hold much excitement for EDV, and we hope you’ll be there to share in our growth. Thanks so much for your support over the past year, and we look forward to sharing our future successes with you.

Warm regards from Haiti,
