Current projects [Pwojé aktyél yo]
Friends of St. Vincent's (Friends) provides scholarship funds to CAHSAV (adult residents of St. Vincent's Center for Children with Disabilities) to pursue their educational degrees and technical studies beyond what is available at St. Vincent's. These scholarships include funding for secondary school, computer training, and small business finance. In addition, we provide an internet connection so that CAHSAV members can take online classes, apply for jobs, learn English, and refine their computer skills. How you can help.
ENTREPRENEURIAL ENDEAVORS AND LEADERSHIP TRAINING
Friends supports entrepreneurial and leadership training in management, finance and supervision. We have supported CAHSAV management in opening a local bank account and securing nonprofit status in Haiti. Currently, CAHSAV members are planning to open a food service at St. Vincent’s, providing staff and visitors to the St. Vincent's with food and drinks while simultaneously developing CAHSAV's critical entrepreneurial skills. How you can help.
TECHNICAL TRAINING IN ARTISAN PROJECTS
Friends is supporting the purchase of basic materials for the clothing design business of one of the CAHSAV members. How you can help.
