The Global Center for the Development of the Whole Child (GC-DWC) at the University of Notre Dame has received three grant awards totaling $3.4 million to fund resilient education programming in Haiti. 
These awards — from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, the LEGO Foundation and USAID — build on Notre Dame’s long history in Haiti and its ongoing commitment to strengthen Haitian education through the Institute for Educational Initiatives. The institute began its work expanding early-grade literacy after the 2010 earthquake and now serves 270 schools and dozens of Catholic parishes.
“With our partners in Haiti, we are building resilient child development and education systems that draw on the three pillars of Haitian society: the home, the school and the church,” said Kate Schuenke-Lucien, the director for Haiti and senior associate director for strategic planning at the GC-DWC. “These new awards allow us to expand our work, especially in light of the damage caused by the 2021 earthquake.”
The awards support the following projects:
“The GC-DWC is excited to partner with Haitian educators, administrators, leaders and donors to respond to urgent needs in Haiti and build a stronger foundation for education moving forward,” said Neil Boothby, the director of GC-DWC and a professor at Notre Dame. “We hope these investments will go a long way toward creating pathways for learners to bright futures.”
