Background of school project

October 22nd, 2013

In 2011, Food for Life Global was asked to be a partner in a new initiative by the Slovenian Ministry of Foreign Affairs in cooperation with IRD (International Relief and Development) to feed children at one of the schools.

The Slovenian government had acquired a donation of 24 prefabricated containers from the Slovenian construction company TRIMO as part of Slovenia’s commitment to assist children affected by the quake. They asked IRD to assist in importing those containers, identifying a location, and building a space that would serve the children of Haiti? IRD then approached FFLG to feed the children healthy lunches. .

In collaboration with the local government, IRD selected a site in a new village in Carrefour, now called Village Fraternite and a year later the school was established.

Food for Life Global is now feeding the children a healthy vegan lunch everyday with donations from the Lotus Trust in the UK and other international donors.
