Cavaillon is located in a flat plain region of southwestern Haiti on the road to Les Cayes, approximately 100 miles from Port-au-Prince. Education Equals Hope’s program is located in Anotte, a rural area a few rocky and dusty miles outside of Cavaillon. More than 90% of people in Anotte live on less than $1 USD per day with limited access to clean water and no electricity, indoor plumbing, sewage systems or medical facilities.
E=H funds the majority of the budget for Ecole St Esprit, a private school with nearly 300 students and a feeding program every school day for three levels of kindergarten and primary grades 1 through 9. In addition, E=H coordinates team visits to support health education seminars for all ages, agronomy projects, art and English language workshops for students and a VBS program for approximately 200 children each summer.
