Landa Florvilus is a 17-year-old young woman who lives in Matènwa, on the island of La Gonâve, Haiti. Her interests include raising farm animals, sewing, and music. Landa likes living in a rural setting on a farm. As a student of Matènwa Community Learning Center (MCLC), she hopes one day this school will offer secondary school. As of now, students have to leave their rural island to attend college. She is still eager to attend college and one day become a doctor, with the hope to return back to her village of Matènwa so she can help her local community.

Help send Landa to school for a year! Landa 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 Kenchelove to attend school.
