Commitment to Action

Sustainable Scholarships - Building Haiti's Human Capital

Commitment by

Haitian Education & Leadership Program (HELP)

In 2010, the Haitian Education and Leadership Program (HELP) committed to provide merit- and need-based university scholarships and leadership training to Haiti's top high school seniors. In addition, HELP committed to inaugurate the Alumni Contribution Model (ACM), whereby beneficiaries will pledge to contribute a percentage of their earnings to HELP over a fixed period of time upon graduation and employment. This sustainable and replicable model will supplement traditional fundraising and provide a dependable source of income over the long term. Through these programs, HELP will empower these high-performing students with the knowledge and skills to break the cycle of poverty and rebuild their country.
