Patrick's Kids Foundation, Inc. (PKF) is a 501(c) (3) nonprofit corporation based in McDonough Georgia that provides academic scholarships to the brightest students in Haiti. We are dedicated to leveraging technology to help close the education gap between Haiti and developed nations.
We believe in the holistic development of this generation to develop the leaders of tomorrow! We focus on: mentorship, leadership, wellness, professional development, and service, to help create change agents in Haiti. Education has proven to be an important catalyst to promote positive social and economic change in developing countries and serves as a dynamic tool to empower communities to shape their future.
According to a recent USAID report, the average Haitian age 25 years or older has less than 5 years of a formal education. Moreover, “early grade reading assessment revealed that roughly 75 percent of children at the end of first grade and nearly half of students finishing second grade could not read a single word. Further, only 61 percent of the adult population is literate.” These alarming statistics are amplified in the rural areas of the country. We believe that the low education base of the Haitian population is at the epicenter of the economic and social malaise that the country has experienced since it emerged on the international stage.

Join us in our mission to cultivate a healthy community of educated leaders in Haiti who will uplift and change the social and economic trajectory of the country.
TOGETHER, WE CAN & WE WILL!
