Since 2014 Sticking Up For Children has helped to fund 11 youth-education partners in Haiti and New Orleans. We've provided more than $150,000 in cash, goods, and services. We also produce four Music & Arts Days for parents and children each year at the Ashé Cultural Arts Center in New Orleans.
Our main push now is through 3D-printing. We've supplied 3D-printers to three partners in Port-au-Prince, Haiti-the Foyer Espoir Pour les Enfants (FEPE) orphanage, the École Foyer Espoir (EFE) school, and College Canapé-Vert-and to the Kuumba Institute of the Ashé CAC in New Orleans. Three of our partners' teachers were trained in 3D-printing of parts for prosthetic limbs at Healing Hands of Haiti in 2016. All of our partners have engaged in 3D-Printing Workshops since 2016. Now these Workshops are weekly at the EFE school and College Canapé-Vert and students are 3D-printing musical instruments. Please see our 2016 and 2017 web-pages for more details.
Accomplishments by our partners' students continue to astonish and gratify us. Despite lacking electricity for the nine months prior to SUFC supplying it with a generator, the EFE school has grown from 160-some to 240-some students in the past year. College Canapé-Vert has completed four stories of new construction since the devastating 2010 earthquake. The 33 post-earthquake orphans at FEPE continue to progress beautifully. Our partners' leaders-Principal Jonathand Saintine at EFE, founder Marie-Jo Poux at FEPE, and the twin legends Marie-Marthe Balin Paul at College Canapé-Vert and Carol Bebelle at the Ashé CAC-are exemplary.
Help us help them so that we all can flourish. Our partners' students are dedicated to improving the world through their creativity and industry. Please share in sustaining them and share in their progress and further breakthrough. Your contribution is eligible for maximal tax-deductibility through SUFC's status as a 501 (c) (3) Public Charity in the United States.
