EDUCATION CHANGES EVERYTHING FOR THE BETTER. And, educating girls is the most effective way to reduce poverty so no child ever goes to bed hungry. I'm raising money to support education of kids and women through Mona Foundation. On average, it costs only $1/day to educate a child. Whether you donate $5 or $500, every little bit helps! Please support our campaign!

About the Project

ROYA SO ARTSY FOR MONA FOUNDATION: a campaign to support the Anis Zunuzi School in Haiti

 

Anis Zunuzi Baha'i School was started over three decades ago to serve the poorest of Haiti’s children. There was no electricity or telephone, or even public transportation to the site. But the need for education for the poor outweighed the logistical challenges.

Anis Zunuzi Baha’i School is an oasis of hope in the midst of chaos outside its walls. The school offers quality K-12 education to 355 students, of whom 55% are girls. The most pronounced characteristic of the school is the loving and caring atmosphere. The school offers excellent academics, music and arts, along with Youth Empowerment Programs to connect the students to, and restore, their pride in their cultural identity.

A story of lives changed. 

Even when they were little boys, brothers Anderson and Donovard dreamed of becoming great people who could be useful to their community. But they worried that their economic situation would prevent them from attaining their goal. Their father, a police officer, was tragically killed and though their mother did her best to keep the family afloat, she got ill and could no longer afford to send the boys to school.

A friend took the family to Anis Zunuzi Baha'i School and after a review of their circumstances the boys were offered a Mona Foundation scholarship. They entered Zunuzi in grades 4 and 5. Now, they are about to finish high school and will be entering university. Anderson plans to be an administrator and Donovard, a doctor.

About Mona Foundation

We support grassroots initiatives that provide education to all children, increase opportunities for women and girls, and emphasize service to the community.

The schools that we support serve marginalized communities globally. They focus on academic excellence, fine arts and character education to develop capable, ethical, and altruistic leaders who contribute to the betterment of their families, communities, and ultimately their nation.  In 2017 we supported the education of 258,000 students, teacher and parents in 18 projects in 10 countries.

 

We focus our support on these three areas:

 

  1. Access - We work with local organizations who know best how to meet the needs of their communities through providing access to education by building classrooms or providing scholarships.
  2. Empower Women & Girls - We believe that empowering women has multiplier effects and benefits all.  Women spend 90% of their earned income on their family and directly impact the economic growth of their communities.
  3. Teacher Training - We emphasize and support teacher training to ensure a high quality of learning and commitment to service.
