Life is precarious on the small islands south west of Haiti. In the poorest country in the western hemisphere, afflicted by earthquakes, hurricanes, droughts, deforestation and marine degradation, the 14 000 people of Ile a Vache and neighbor islets must also deal with the very high cost of living offshore.
GSF's school at La Hatte is free to all children, and provides a nutritious lunch so that even the poorest families in the district can send their children to school. We also support IMECT primary school near Petit Gouave in similar circumstances.
Many other GSF programs are addressing the daily and long-term needs of the islanders - further education, health, management of resources, and economic development by means of microcredit and business start-ups.
From our small support base in the Virgin Islands, we reach out to friends all over the world to enable us to continue this vital assistance - successful over more than a decade through some of Haiti's worst turmoil. We need your help!
