NEGES Foundation Inc. (Haiti- Nest for Educational Growth and Environmental Safety)
Earthquake Relief in Leogane, Haiti through sustainable community with housing, education, career training, technology integration, partnerships and entrepreneurship.
Located located just outside of Léogâne, Mon P’tit Village is on 8 acres near the epicenter of the earthquake on 12 January 2010. The area was destroyed, with nearly 90% of buildings in ruins.
Working in collaboration with partners in the community, NEGES Foundation provide services to improve the health, education, social and economic needs of the people of Léogâne. Today, Mon P’tit Village has become the heartbeat of Léogâne. With classrooms, a women’s center, a restaurant, an herb garden and store, our projects are focused in the following areas: Sustainability and the Environment, Education and Social Development, as well as Capacity Building and Economic Development.
As a gathering place of the community, our vision is to expand our current capacity by building a Polytechnic Institute, a Women’s Health Center, and a Sports Center.
At the hearth of Mon P’tit Village is our Volunteer Center where all of our visitors stay, whether they come for teaching classes, work camps, or to share their professional services.
