We present these projects to you, as a means to help you better share in our vision for FOHO and encourage your continued support. Here at FOHO we believe in creating opportunity for our students, and ultimately reducing their dependency on charity.
EXTRACURRICULAR ACTIVITIES & CLUBS:
FOHO has a series of extracurricular programs that are offered to the children, based on availability of funding and collaboration with local professions. Our daily priorities are to educate, feed and shelter students in need and maintain monthly salary payment for our teachers and Haiti-based staff.
All extracurricular activities are designed to encourage creative exploration, gain exposure to entrepreneurship, build critical life skills, and raise self-esteem.
Programming activities include but are not limited to the following:
Arts & Crafts: Drawing, Painting, Collaging Cartooning and misc. crafts.
Board Games: Chess, Monopoly, Checkers, Backgammon, Dominos, etc.
Book Club & Library Helpers: Multi-tiered club design to encourage independent learning and reward high achievers. (TBD*)
