From devastation to determination

In 2010, a catastrophic 7.0M earthquake hit Haiti, taking hundreds of thousands of casualties, and leaving over 3 million people wounded, homeless, and impoverished. And although many countries came forward with humanitarian aid, many children were left orphaned and homeless, with no hope for the future. 

Edeline Felizor, a survivor of the earthquake, was left crushed under rubble with life threatening injuries. But to this Haitian teacher and nurse, the children who were left orphaned and homeless were far more devastating than anything she had endured. “My dream has always been to help children. I want to do that through a school that will give hope to the poorest children in Haiti,” said Edeline. So in 2011, Project Edeline was born with the help of a few new friends from san diego.

Under the umbrella of Youth Without Borders, Project Edeline gives the children of Haiti a chance for a brighter future. Funded completely by sponsors, the elementary school located in Beudet provides an education, clean water, food and healthcare to children in need. And beyond improving the lives of the children, Project Edeline works towards restoring economic hope and stability for the country.
