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.  

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.
