In September 2010, still shaken by the earthquake that ravaged Haïti, members of the class 1964 of the Institution Saint-Louis de Gonzague in Port-au-Prince, meet to plan how to help their compatriots. The needs are enormous as reported by several of them who travel to the country to help as best as they can. They create a foundation to alleviate poverty as soon as possible and advance education so that the sons and daughters of the country can contribute to its reconstruction.
For 10 years, the Foundation raises funds from generous donors and builds a kitchen to provide hot meals daily to the students of the Modern School of La Vallée de Jacmel. With the management of the School as an active partner, it builds classrooms for 7th to 9th grades which allow students to continue their education until they acquire their certificate of studies. Over the years, more than 20 students each school year, among the most disadvantaged, continue their studies at the school thanks to the academic support provided by the Foundation. The pupils also learn to grow vegetables, master the computer, appreciate reading in various subjects and also learn how to sew.

Recurrent projects are maintained to ensure the advancement of education, a sure bet for enabling development, establishing autonomy and alleviating poverty.
