Ecole Philadelphia de Mirebelais
Ecole Philadelphia de Mirebelais is a school completely funded by donations and serving hundreds of financially-impoverished families in Mirebalais, Haiti. Peacework supports Ecole Philadelphia’s innovative large-scale fish farming project which utilises ten outdoor ponds and over one hundred fruit trees designed to teach children about raising fish and farming while increasing income and food security. In the longer run, it is hoped that the farm will contribute to funding the school. Stephen Skripak, retired professor of business at Virginia Tech, has been coordinating fundraising efforts for over eleven years. Like all contributions to Peacework, donations to Ecole Philadelphia are 100% tax-deductible. Click the link below to donate to this cause.
