As you may already know, UDH is a non-profit organization dedicated to providing assistance to Haitian students who aspire to obtain a university degree and further their education. Since 2011, UDH has helped over 1,500 students by offering them equipment, school supplies as well as scholarship, rotational, financial and logistical assistance. Some of our core activities have been:
- The annual sponsorship of University Notre Dame of Haiti’s students’ sponsorship to Boston to participate in the Cambridge Health Alliance Summer Intern Program.
- A scholarship program that sponsors university students living in Haiti facing financial hardship.
As part of UDH’s community engagement and outreach, “Kwen Sante” was established in 2012. It is a weekly radio program called Health Corner which educates and raises public awareness about primary care to empower patients with vital education/information that allows them to become better advocates for their health. Kwen Sante’s goal is to promote preventive medicine as the mean to achieve overall health.
This year our goal is to raise $50,000 to fund our community health and outreach program while expanding the scope of UDH’s weekly radio broadcast show to the Haitian community. These funds will also provide ongoing scholarship and mentorship programs as well as financial support. As part of this program externship is also offered.
Your sponsorship will help assure the success of UDH’s “Fundraising Affair”. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or concerns. We will be making follow-up calls starting the week of February 25th, 2017 and hope that we can count on your support.
