What’s new at HELP:

In remembrance

January 13, 2015


On January 12th 2010, HELP lost Evenson Jean and Marc-Erline Dezulma, two promising students whose lives ended, as Marc-Erline’s family put it, “before their proper conclusion.” Many HELP staff and students also lost family and friends on that day. As we mark the fifth anniversary of our losses, the thoughts and prayers of the HELP community are with all of those affected by the tragic effects of the earthquake. As Roodly Joseph (HELP class of 2000) said, “We have to come up strong. Nou pa ka lage (We can’t give up).”

HELP Featured in the NY Times

December 20, 2014

New York Times’ writer Nicholas Kristof featured HELP in his December 20th column, “The Gift of Education.”

As Bill Clinton says, “Nobody clarifies the social challenges of our time, or the moral imperative to help meet them, better than Nick Kristof,” so this column is a powerful endorsement of HELP.

When Stephanie Rubin (HELP class of 2019) met Kristof in Haiti, she told him, “I never imagined I would be able to meet a journalist from the New York Times! But since I’ve been at HELP, now I know anything is possible.”
