At Summits, we believe in the power of education and its ability to transform countries. 

 



Where we work

Summits operates a network of 40 primary schools in the remote mountains of Haiti's Central Department, the region with the lowest literacy rate in the Western Hemisphere. Most families in the Central Plateau are subsistence farmers, and live on less than $2 dollars per day.
