Project activities in the Haut de St Marc region of Haiti (located in the mountainous region northwest of Port-au-Prince) include elementary and secondary education, adult literacy, capacity building and a micro-finance program. Rayjon Share Care Haiti (RSCH) is our partner managing all programs.

Our Haitian partners have embraced the challenge of hard economic times and reduced budgets, and are working to find sustainable solutions while reducing financial dependence upon Rayjon Canada.

The St Marc team includes a Field Director, sector leaders, teachers, support staff and community volunteers. Together, they are engaging community members in participatory planning to take ownership of schools, economic development initiatives and to advocate for their rights. Strategic visioning led by the community has recently taken place and will guide Rayjon as we review programming and future direction for the St. Marc area.
