This party has been possible thanks to the generous contributions of friends and family, as well as businesses and organizations in Haiti and the United States. Thanks to the overwhelming support for this project, we have gained enough funds to invest in a more sustainable project. We will soon be opening an education/library center in Furcy, as we believe education to be key in the growth of the community and of Haiti.
The smile that this party brings to the children is amazing and heart warming. I wish to bring them this moment of joy for years to come and hope to continue to invest in their future with the help of everyone."
