Who We Help

Danord Baptiste

Danord Baptiste

Danord Baptiste received his business management degree from the University of Fondwa in the summer of 2019.  He was not on scholarship for his first 2 years of study and he could not afford to pay for room and board. He lived at home and walked 4 hours to get to school each day. The Raising Haiti Foundation (RHF) met Danord when he was starting in his 3rd year and provided a full scholarship with room and board for his last two years of study.

In August 2019 Danord began a 6-month microcredit internship, sponsored by RHF. After the internship he will become a microcredit agent in one of the 3Legs pilot communities, initiating a new RHF sponsored microcredit program that provides loans to women farmers. He has his university degree, is receiving post-graduate training, and will have a well paying job, which provides a valuable service in one of the 3Legs communities, improving the income of participants an average of 25%.
