Why Contribute To The Cause?


The UN and many other international bodies, considers Haiti to be the poorest country in the Western Hemisphere. On January 12, 2010, Haiti sustained the greatest natural hemispheric disaster in continental America (North, Central, and South) resulted in the death of 300,000 lives, the destruction of thousands of homes and other infrastructures. GNP has been in the fore front in helping toward the educational need of poor underprivileged children in Haiti from inception. After this unimaginable catastrophe, GNP has become more determined and committed in ensuring the achievement and success of the educational well being of the children in Allaire and Pestel.


Supporting educational institutions is essential to nation building, especially in underdeveloped nation states. In the developed nations, educational institutions are the backbone of national development. The developed nations contribute tremendously to the development of these educational institutions by providing financial support to build, expand, and modernize facilities for libraries, computer rooms, learning labs, and vocational training. These facilities are outfitted with the latest equipment and technology to provide the optimum learning for students and teachers.


The higher institutions of learning (colleges and universities) in these nations are provided the financial resources in the form of grants to do research and development. The ultimate goal for this type of investment is to create technology and science that are marketable in the national and global economy. Companies that are ultimately created from the research and development at these institutions, add to the wealth and viability of the nation by the jobs that are created, the taxes that are generated, and the usefulness of the technology to society.


It is generally assumed that educational and cultural institutions derive financial support from the government. While most of the financial support would come from the government in the form of grants and tax relief, a large percentage also comes from individuals, corporations, and foundations in the form of philanthropic contributions. Also, individuals with modest incomes continue to give financially to their Alma Mater to support the school’s education programs. Wealthy individuals also give away more of their wealth to academic and cultural institutions in order to maintain sufficient funding for the future. This sort of philanthropy is viewed as necessary in these developed societies for the perpetuation of culture, economic development, science & technology, and modernization of institutions.
