Transforming Education in Haiti’s Central Plateau

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. Working in partnership with the Haitian Ministry of Education we reach a network of nearly 10,000 students in addition to 350 teachers, trainers, and administrators. 

All of our schools are listed below, by region.
