HRDF BELIEVES IN EDUCATION, INVESTS IN AQUIN’S FUTURE

January 2016 – The Haitian Resource Development Foundation <hrdf.org> recently proudly awarded a two-year $3000 scholarship to Marc-Donald Jacquet, a young Aquin resident who recently begun advanced studies in electromechanical engineering at Canado Technical School in the nation’s capital, Port-au-Prince.

The past two years, Marc-Donald who graduated from Aquin’s public school system, worked as HRDF’s technical equipment coordinator and systems person, caring for the popular children’s commuity computing program and independent solar electric power system, both funded through a competitive grant from W.K.Kellogg Foundation. In exchange for his scholarship, MarcDonald has agreed to return to Aquin after graduation and continue working as staffmember of HRDF. Meanwhile, we wish him the best of luck in his studies and we will “leave the light on” for him anytime he wants

to visit us. Thank you, Marc -Donald!
