Recently, one of our advisors, Josh VanFleteren, traveled to Haiti with a group from Trezo, an organization dedicated to serving the people of Cayes-Jacmel, Haiti. Trezo, which was co-founded by Josh's parents, established and currently operates a K-6 grade school serving roughly 100 children.
The goal of this particular trip was to begin the construction of new classrooms on the school grounds, and to distribute gifts to the students from their sponsors in the US.
Strauss Financial Group currently sponsors three children at the school, Djennie Josephine (John and Heidi), Anastaisia Desir (Arthur), and Ralph Bauzil (Josh). The sponsorship provides many resources and opportunities for the students, including:
- School Uniforms
- Lunch (Usually their only meal of the day)
- School Supplies
- Care packages from sponsors
If you would like any additional information on Trezo and its students, please feel free to go to their website: http://www.trezo.org/.
