A HUGE thank you to all of our friends and believers who have supported our efforts giving your time, funding and supplies to empower youth in Haiti to improve their lives and strengthen their communities! Together we raised at least 102% for our 4th annual Jouk Li Jou Kan Foto campaign, and completed enough of our 2014 Wish List to successfully carry out our agenda! It is extremely gratifying to know that every camera, piece of equipment, and computer were donated by you!

Big thanks to our creative and hardworking incredible students from Cité Soleil and Jacmel who are the future of Haiti! We have an overwhelming appreciation to the local Jacmel community who generously gave their time and patience so our students could make beautiful images.

Special thanks to our volunteers from Haiti and the U.S. who worked with our students every day to make Jouk Li Jou Kan Foto such a huge success!

The phrase fast and furious is appropriate for the task upon us preparing for our fourth annual Jouk Li Jou Kan Foto. We’ve got the volunteer team and the plans, and now we need to get the funds and materials together to make this another successful summer learning program for our 32 students.

We’re really excited about the extra additions to our curriculum this year integrating the basic steps for learning about and starting a small business, resume writing, one on one computer training, continuing photo studio instruction, and more local professional guest speakers. Students will still have daily assignments including the perfect photo for a postcard.

All of our students, Guy and Jen, and the entire Jouk Li Jou Kan Foto Team appreciate the love and support over the years. Thank you for believing in us!
