Hand in Hand for Haïti Project: 80 Scholarships to Celebrate 80 Years
The Hand in Hand for Haiti project is a philanthropic effort of the Meeschaert Group that builds upon our initial support of four Haitian children in 2014 and aims to fund 80 additional scholarships to celebrate the company’s 80th anniversary.
Our goal is to support 80 Haitian children attending Lycée Jean-Baptiste Pointe du Sable in Sant-Marc, through the Hand in Hand for Haiti Foundation, by funding at least 80 scholarships of $5,000 each, over the next three years.
