ABOUT EDEYO FOUNDATION Edeyo, derived from a Haitian Creole word meaning “help them”, is a NYC based non-profit organization, devoted to improving the future for children in Haiti through programs focused on Education. Supporting the impoverished Bel-Air neighborhood, in Port-au-Prince Haiti, Edeyo’s primary school supplies life-changing opportunities through free education and the provision of desperately needed food, water, health care, and social support to affected children. Since its grassroots beginning in 2007, Edeyo has grown to support a school of over 300 elementary school students annually, providing them with a haven of safety and hope. Edeyo also provides full scholarships to over two dozen high school students, facilitating their path to long-term success.
