The Vassar Haiti Project started in 2002 with subsidizing teachers’ salaries and school expenses including school supplies and uniforms alongside the lunch program. Ecole St. Paul de Chermaitre has eleven teachers, 285 students and a team of working staff in the kitchen and management. Through subsidization, education becomes affordable for students and their families.
