Monise Louis-juste is a 17-year-old who lives in the small village of Nankafe in Haiti. It takes her about an hour to walk to her school—Matènwa Community Learning Center—on the island of La Gonâve. Both of her parents are farmers, which brings in very little money to support their family. Despite this, Monise remains optimistic and is very grateful for the opportunity to receive an education. She is uncertain about her future career, but she wants to be the first in her family to graduate from high school. She has aspirations to learn a trade that helps support her family. She needs your help to make this dream a reality.
100% of your donation goes directly to Friends of Matènwa, Inc. as a grant to allow her to attend school. If our fundraising goal is met, Monise will be provided school fees, education materials and a daily hot breakfast. Transform the life of Monise by donating today!

About our program:
GROW (Girls' Right to Opportunity Worldwide), a signature project of GreaterGood.org, is dedicated to improving girls' well being by supporting and monitoring innovating projects that identify and remove barriers to girls' education across the globe.
Matènwa Community Learning Center School (MCLC), located on the island of La La Gonâve, off the coast of Haiti, is the country's only recognized model school. USAID and the Haitian Ministry of Education have publically acknowledged the high quality of teaching at MCLC. Teachers who work at the school have undergone rigorous training, and unlike most of Haiti's schools, students at MCLC are safe. At this school, teachers are not allowed to hit their students. Not only do students receive a quality education, they get breakfast everyday.
