Hello NexGenHaiti Visitors,
I am a native of Haiti and, though I have lived in Canada for over 40 years, I have very strong ties to my native country. I am the Founder and President of Pierspective Entraide Humanitaire (P.E.H.) www.haitiaide.ca which has been dedicated to providing supplies, equipment and funding for Haitian citizens and businesses since 2002.
I had the pleasure of meeting Donny Young in November, 2011, at a Dinner P.E.H. held in Toronto to raise funds for a new primary school being constructed near Port Au Prince in Corail, Haiti. Antoine DeRose, who met Donny in 2010, introduced us and I was impressed with his genuine interest in learning about our efforts in Haiti.
In May, 2012, Antoine informed me that Donny had contacted him and told him about his wonderful Project, NexGenHaiti, and that he really wanted to ‘make a difference’ for the children of Haiti that would be ‘measurable’ and ‘sustainable.’ I was very excited to learn this, as there are so many children who need our assistance.
On June 1, 2012, Donny attended another fund-raising dinner P.E.H. held in Toronto, and he told me he had registered NexGenHaiti.com and was having a website built, at his expense. His passion and excitement was very inspiring! I was extremely gratified that he had undertaken this great initiative.
In August, 2017, NexGenHaiti agreed to provide scholarships for four more boys and girls to attend school in Haiti, right through their graduation from University. This was wonderful news! Donny will be personally paying 100% of all eight children’s tuition costs.
To all of you taking the time to visit these pages, thank you very much for your kind support!
