Educational Programs

Global Education and Development Initiative (GEDI)

FEJ Canada raises funds and supports FEJ’s educational programs in Haiti in addition to developing education initiatives in Montreal.
Founded 30 years ago, the school – institution Mixte Lucienne A. Duncan – was designed to serve the growing needs for education and childcare in the Lamardelle region and the surrounding areas. Our goal is to facilitate the development of children and strengthen and support their families. Institution Mixte Lucienne A. Duncan is community-based and serves as an extension of the family’s child rearing.

How You Can Help?

Get involved in one of two ways – by making a financial donation to the program through our Sponsor a Child Program, or by collecting supplies and filling backpacks.

Sponsor a Child Program:

In sponsoring a child at FEJ’s school in Haiti, you’ll be contributing to:

  • Supporting a child in their personal and academic development
  • Paying school fees for them
  • Providing basic medical assistance
  • Meeting the primary needs of the children (food/hygiene)
  • Helping us to organize popular canteens: 1 meal a day for the children.

Back to School Kits Program:

Please note that we collect school supplies for this program during the month of June.

  • The program provides vital school supplies to hundreds of children who begin the school year without proper essentials
  • The program equips students with the tools needed to help them thrive and prepare them for a successful school year and beyond
