We have a high school in Cite Soleil, which is educating 253 students from the age of 11-19, and a micro finance operation in the south. To date we have been able to assist 2600 rural Haitian women. The donations Chancerygate have made have been put toward teaching salaries and PPE for the school and microfinance branch.”
