The Anis Zunuzi School opened in 1982 outside a very impoverished area of Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Originally the school opened their doors for kindergarten and elementary education. Since then, it has grown into a full K-12 institution along with a comprehensive summer program and extra-curricular English classes for adults. Thanks to supporters like you, 170 girls and 146 boys received an education in the 2014-2015 school year.
This year, Mona Foundation directly funded 43 students on full scholarship and 15 students on partial scholarship. Mona Foundation funds indirectly support the education of all 316 students enrolled at the Anis Zunuzi School through support of teachers’ salaries, teacher training, operations, arts and summer camp programs.
See how your support has transformed the life of one young girl, whose single mother could not longer pay for her education. She wouldn’t be in school if not for the Mona Foundation.
“I was really without hope when I knocked on the door of the Anis Zunuzi School. Thanks to your generosity, today I have the change to have a better future. I wish to offer special thanks to those who contributed and aided the Mona Foundation to enable the education of so many children in places all over the world. We the children of Haiti hope that this support continues to provide help to our sisters and brothers, who, like me, without this support, would not have much hope.”
Today, the Anis Zunuzi School has become an oasis of hope for a way out of poverty. The greatest challenge the school faces is to fully integrate their teachings into the life of the community. To face this challenge, the school has created initiatives to support students to share the moral education programs they’ve been learning with the young people in their neighborhood. The administration relies heavily on Mona Foundation supporters so they can continue to encourage their students to spread moral education throughout their homes and communities.
