Why an Endowment and Why Now?
Education in the community of Petit Trou, and at St. Paul’s School in particular, has been at the heart of Colorado Haiti Project’s work since its inception. In honor of our 25th Anniversary in 2014, Colorado Haiti Project wishes to ensure the long-term stability and quality of education in Petit Trou – to preserve all that has been built over the years – by establishing a permanent endowment for education in Haiti. An endowment provides stability, and is a symbol of fiscal responsibility and prudent planning.

The goal of the Colorado Haiti Project Educational Endowment is to fully support the primary school – grades one through six – at St. Paul’s School in Petit Trou de Nippes. In perpetuity.
