Lenise Lima is an intelligent 17-year-old girl attending Matènwa Community Learning Center in Matènwa, Haiti. She comes from a large family of 14. Although Lenise grew up poor, she feels grateful to have her parents work hard to provide for everyone. Knowing there are several challenges regarding food in her community, Lenise has a smart vision for her future. After she graduates, she wants to go to university to learn agronomy. She wants to teach farmers about proper techniques so they are able to produce more and better quality food.
With your help, we can send Lenise to school for a year! Lenise 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 Lenise to attend school. If our fundraising goal is met, Lenise will be provided school fees, educational materials and a daily hot breakfast. Transform the life of Lenise by donating today!
