Fabiola Peti-Frère lives in the small village of Nanplim on the island of La Gonâve, Haiti. It takes her about an hour to Matènwa, where she attends Matènwa Community Learning Center (MCLC). Fabiola is 19 years old, yet she is only in the 9th grade because a model school did not exist in her area when she was young. She is determined to receive a quality education and has a smart plan for her future:
"After high school, I would like to become a police officer so I can help fight crime in Haiti. In some parts of the country, people are stealing and killing to survive. As a police officer, I would like to work to bring peace to the country."
With your help, we can send Fabiola to school for a year! Fabiola is of the first generation to attend secondary school on the Island of La Gonâve, Haiti. GreaterGood.org is supporting the build out of the Matènwa Community Learning Center (MCLC), the only secondary school on La Gonâve! 100% of your donation goes directly to Friends of Matènwa, Inc. as a grant to allow Fabiola to attend school. If our fundraising goal is met, Fabiola will be provided school fees, educational materials and a daily hot breakfast. Transform her life by donating today!
