CURRENT PROJECTS

ACM believes that education is a fundamental right that should be provided to everyone. Unfortunately, in the poor and isolated areas of Haiti, communities face obstacles to education such as geographic barriers, low income and ignorance.

 

To overcome these obstacles, ACM, with the support of SOSAKA INC. and other donors, help the children of Leroux-Cachiman get an education so that they create a place for themselves in society.

Access to nutritious meals and food hygiene is a major problem in Haiti, especially among children in rural areas. Faced with such a challenge, ACM set up a school canteen and started serving one hot meal per week. Over the years, more days have been added and breakfast has also been added to the menu. Despite these positive initiatives, the situation remains critical.

After trying a few approaches to improve food intake, the conditions of service and meal preparation, ACM is committed to working with its Montreal partners, in particular Fondation Métamorphose Développement, SOSAKA INC. as well as other donors.

​​Like education, health occupies an important place in any society for sustainable development. Given the level of poverty in the community, children are very vulnerable in terms of health. For example,  some signs of scabies, pediculosis, psoriasis, malnutrition, anemia, gastrointestinal disturbances and other conditions have been observed.

ACM, with the help of its partners and donors, organizes periodic health clinics for the toddlers. This service could be extended to all students and even to the entire community if financial conditions improve.

In these underprivileged areas, parents are generally very young. In Leroux-Cachiman, they range between 16 and 25 years of age and 95% are illiterate. These young adults isolate themselves and consider themselves unable to integrate adequately into society.

With the support of the Saint-Martial Foundation, ACM has been able to enhance their potential by providing the parents with a literacy program to teach them basic skills. Such knowledge will allow them to better function in society, to achieve personal goals and to be more autonomous.

In January 2020, with the collaboration of Fonkozé, a new microcredit program was launched to help women in the village. This initiative will allow them to manage their small businesses, enabling them to better meet the needs of their families.

ACM covers the minimum down payment required for each woman, while Fonkozé provides assistance and a low interest loan. The capital can increase every six months if the beneficiary demonstrates good management.
