Cost Summary

To ensure 10 years of a sustainable and successful program, then, we are planning to raise $216,000 for this initial program in LaVallee as well as additional funds to expand Be Happy Haiti to other cities and villages within the Twinning program. This will only be possible through YOUR generous donations and involvement.
