Cunina in Haiti
In 1998, Sophie, the founder of Cunina, travelled to Haiti for the first time in her life. It became a turning point in her life. “I realized that I was able to and wanted to do more for underprivileged children and that education is the key to a better future. Nine months later, Cunina was born.”
Haiti is the birthplace of Cunina. In the last 25 years, we have realized numerous amazing projects in this country. We bought a new student house in Port-au-Prince, because the earthquake in 2010 destroyed the previous one.
In the inland, we have built four new schools each consisting of eight classrooms. We also provided them with decent school furniture. A couple of years ago, the children had to sit on the ground and the few materials that they did have were mostly worn out.
Holes in the blackboard, a floor made out of dirt, mud walls that are falling apart…This will all be in the past soon. Thanks to the support of Cunina godparents and partners, the children will have new classrooms with quality desks and the schools will be provided with proper teaching materials.
