With a commitment to share the knowledge and experience gained, ACE Haiti has engaged leading partners to support broader efforts to strengthen education in the country. ACE Haiti supported Partners in Health, a leading non-profit focused on health and human development, with an assessment and strategic plan for its network of nearly fifty rural schools in Haiti’s Central Plateau. ACE Haiti also supported the W.K. Kellogg Foundation with a feasibility study and initial design support for the creation of a philanthropic Education Fund, which promises to continue to drive improvements and innovation in Haiti for generations to come.
The W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF), founded in 1930 as an independent, private foundation by breakfast cereal pioneer Will Keith Kellogg, is among the largest philanthropic foundations in the United States. Guided by the belief that all children should have an equal opportunity to thrive, WKKF works with communities to create conditions for vulnerable children so they can realize their full potential in school, work and life.
Our mission is to provide a preferential option for the poor in health care. By establishing long-term relationships with sister organizations based in settings of poverty, Partners In Health strives to achieve two overarching goals: to bring the benefits of modern medical science to those most in need of them and to serve as an antidote to despair.
We draw on the resources of the world’s leading medical and academic institutions and on the lived experience of the world’s poorest and sickest communities. At its root, our mission is both medical and moral. It is based on solidarity, rather than charity alone.
When our patients are ill and have no access to care, our team of health professionals, scholars, and activists will do whatever it takes to make them well—just as we would do if a member of our own families or we ourselves were ill.
