Sabine’s Story: Graduating with pride and dignity. Haiti.




Sabine never knew her father. Her mother washed clothes at an orphanage to support her three children. Her meager salary barely put food on the table, but knowing how important education is, she scraped together enough money to pay the school fees for Sabine at Anis Zunuzi School.

When Sabine entered eighth grade, her mother could no longer afford the fees. It looked like Sabine would have to leave school. Thankfully, because of donors like you, the Mona Foundation was able to offer a scholarship to Sabine, who will graduate from high school next year! Sabine is an excellent student and role model to the younger children. After she graduates, she plans to pursue a degree in administrative science.

“I am thankful for the high quality of the education that the school offers and I appreciate the discipline and the competence of the wonderful teachers. Thank you to the directors and the supporters of the Mona Foundation for this generous gift.”
