Ecole Communautaire Foyer des Enfants
The founder and principal are married and refer to the school as their family. A notion that all of us at Summits believe stand as our mission statement for our network of 40. The community of Foyer des Enfants des Desbayes is home to many voodoosants, and where our first campaign #TeachersFirst upon our launch back in 2015 was filmed. The founder was originally a health agent in the area for Zanmi Lasante and when she saw the large amount of children not going to school because of lack of access, she decided it was her duty to build one.
