At-Risk Children Foundation

ARCF’s objectives for 2012 – 2016

As a Non Governmental Organization [NGO] working in Haiti our short and long term goals are to:
1. Continue providing care for 82 children, of which 65 are direct beneficiaries.
2. Build a complete elementary school which includes preparatory education.
3. Build a dispensary and develop a non-prescriptive community pharmacy.
4. Make available IT communication / computer classes.
5. Provide vocational training, and a job network to help secure work.
6. Set up a literacy program for adults, and micro-project enterprises.

The goal is for ARCF to develop a self-sustaining community, and consequently the whole region would benefit. ARCF has secured sizeable parcels of land donated by some prominent local residents and the local government on which to achieve these goals.

Up-Coming Trips to Haiti

The Catholic Mission Trips International

The CMT mission group is coming to ARCF’s property in Custine, Cavaillon Haiti this July with 20 men (10 fathers and their sons). They will begin the initial construction of our elementary school. They are fundraising money toward the project which will greatly benefit the children and the community. Father Lampy will generously provide the lodging for them at the LaJemmerais School in Custine. Fifteen thousand dollars (15,000.00) is needed to help fund this project and to accommodate them for 2 weeks. For the fall season of 2012 we would like to utilize this facility for the children.

Children at Chez Moi

Fact Finding Mission

Ms. Kristen Kushner, an educator in Orlando, Florida is planning to make her first trip to Haiti in June. She will be visiting Custine to meet the children as well as the local community. While there she will also visit the future site of the Soveyo Village Community Project. Ms. Kushner has great interest in educating the youth of Haiti. As a teacher in Orlando many of her students are from Haiti or of Haitian descent. Through this experience with her students she has developed an understanding of their culture and a desire to participate in the rebuilding of Haiti. Accompanying her will be David Jessup, a fellow educator with experience in the non-profit sector.
