In Partnership with Bull Outdoor Products, Inc, For a Reason has embarked on the “Grill for Good” campaign that will build outdoor food preparation areas at the schools our students attend. For most of our students and their classmates, the daily lunch served at these rural schools is the only meal these children will receive that day. Our first undertaking, in 2015, was stage one of the outdoor facility at the Zanmi Agrikol University in Corporant, Haiti. Students learn agricultural techniques, construction and woodworking. The facility will not only be used to prepare and feed the students attending the university but will eventually become a center for teaching community members about food processing, preparation and preservation.
This year, a building project begins for the students of Ecole St. Saint Mathias in Cherident, Haiti. This school serves over 500 students in grade K-12 and is a center of community life and activity.
Thanks to the Bull Outdoor Products annual commitment of $20,000 we look forward to partnering with communities throughout rural Haiti and working together to build better schools and programs.
