Tetkole

Tetkole Pou Yon Demen Miyò ("Heads together for a better tomorrow") was founded through a relationship with one child on the street in Jacmel in 2001 and has grown to a community of more than 100 youth.  

At its community center in the heart of Jacmel, Tetkole provides meals, educational assistance, and mentors who work to integrate the community and families in cultivating a culture of positivity and creative problem-solving.  Among some of the creative outlets Tetkole offers are field trips, jewelry and paper crafts, and a band that performs for groups in the Jacmel community.  In 2010 Tetkole opened a temporary shelter where displaced children can stay while Tetkole staff work to find their families.
