We, the members of GVSU students for Haiti seek to organize and meet in order to 1) Create a cultural experience for GV students to learn about Haitian culture; 2) Promote a better understanding of the social, historical and economic context of Haiti; 3) Empowering Haiti to problem solve through education and information exchange; 4) Help cultivate a broader understanding of Haitians and Haitian culture.
The Empowering Haiti through Education Fund exists solely to support "rising stars" from Haitian high schools, who, without financial support, would not be able to realize their potential and pursue higher education in the USA. The scholarship helps these students to attend Grand Valley State University so that, after receiving their education, they can return to Haiti and further that nation's development.If you would like to contribute please go to www.gvsu.edu/haiti
The purpose of this organization shall be to provide 1) fund raising support and increased awareness of the Empowering Haiti through Education GVSU scholarship fund; 2) Opportunities for students to participate in service opportunities both locally and in Haiti; 3) Opportunities for GVSU students to experience Haitian culture and food.
