In partnership with the Haitian Education and Leadership Program (HELP), the Foundation has set up a Paré Scholar Program to support deserving young students in Haiti.
Started in 2010, shortly after the earthquake, the Paré scholar program consists of:
- Tuition-free classes at an internationally accredited university
- Textbooks and supplies
- Housing in HELP dorms and a living stipend
- Academic advising and counseling, including computer literacy and English classes
- Leadership & Citizenship training

Our current Paré Scholar, Valencia Dorvilus, is studying agro-economics at Quisqueya University in Port-au-Prince. Her classes include botany, soil science and local traditional medicine.
