Long Term Plan
Continue to provide quality education to children from vulnerable communities in Haiti because "Edikasyon se sèl solisyon", Education is the only solution.
PRODEV is a Haitian non-profit, non-political foundation officially recognized by the government of Haiti. PRODEV was established in 1995 by Maryse Pénette-Kedar, and her father Max Pénette to empower the youth of Haiti through education. PRODEV’s work has expanded over time to address the evolving needs of Haiti’s children. From 2006-2010, PRODEV operated a primary school within a detention center for minors. In Spring 2010, following the January 2010 earthquake, PRODEV operated 14 elementary schools and eight kindergartens in tent camps around Port-au-Prince. PRODEV opened its first independent school, Ecole Nouvelle Zoranje, in October 2010.
