Why Haiti?

FEJ began about 30 years ago with the building of the chapel, but rapidly, it expanded as a school was added in the community of Lamardelle, a rural area close to the Dominican Republic border.

The foundation’s current CEO, Gina Duncan, decided to return to Haiti, after more than 25 years spent abroad in Canada and the United States with a mission to give back to her native country.

Yes, Haiti is the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere, but also is known to be rich in culture. Haitians are proud of their country and really hope for the change that could come. That is why Gina Duncan came back to Haiti with her drive, wanting to help communities in difficult situations and overall, build a better country.
