Ecole Communautaire Saint Luc

About a 45 minute hike that twists around Lake Pèligre and just outside of Cange, the village where Zanmi Lasante was founded, Father Lafontant and Paul Farmer came to Vieux Cayes and saw the need for a school in the area. Beneath a cluster of trees, and surrounded by subsistence farming of bananas, peanuts, tobacco and the likes, the principal is a product of the community, and would rise at five in the morning to hike down to Cange to attend school. The community is also home to various members of our administration team showing the transformative power of an education on an entire community.
