Building a sustainable community with positive leaders, educators, and innovators.
The Good Samaritan Foundation of Haiti is committed to advancing education, health and welfare of the children of Ile a Vache
and Morne Tapion, Haiti
With the school now well established, and the success of our programs, GSF is living proof that small private charities can succeed, are cost-effective and have lower overheads. We continue to work with many other groups, in hopes that our symbiotic relationship can benefit all.
With our agriculture program and tree planting now underway, we hope to begin to address the rejuvenation of the island's Great Barrier Reef. We are training agronomists, nurses, teachers, and practical trades, such as plumbers, mechanics, and solar electricians. With financial sponsorship, we will be able to introduce new programs that will continue to improve the lives of the people of Ile a Vache and Morne Tapion.
