Lesmyrla Cadet Scholars – Port-de-Paix, Haiti
Our Haiti Program is named in memory of Lesmyrla Cadet, a 14 year-old student at Inlet Grove Community High School in Riviera Beach, Florida, who was hit by a car and killed on her way to school on December 8, 2015. She was regarded by her principal as a “very bright young lady” and an “excellent student.” She was on the pre-law track at the school and hoped to one day become a lawyer. We honor and memorialize her through each of our sponsored students, known as Lesmyrla Cadet Scholars.
For $20 a month you can provide an education for a child in Haiti who couldn’t otherwise afford it. Sponsorship is easy and incredibly rewarding. You can set up a recurring donation online or send a check. $20 a month per student makes a world of difference for a young kid living in a tough place. Don’t just take our word for it, see the smiles of our 2016-17 Lesmyrla Cadet Scholars below.
Students like Micolson are proud to share their report cards at the end of each semester.

Archives: In March 2015, we traveled to Haiti where we conducted a needs assessment in and around the city of Port-de-Paix. Over a quarter of a million Haitians call this home. We delivered valuable medical supplies to the only hospital in the city – L’Hôpital de Immaculée Conception. This facility is struggling to function with limited resources. Power outages are common in Haiti, so the hospital relies on a generator for its power. Basic medical supplies like gloves, needles, and sterile dressings are in short supply. The situation there is unacceptable and we are coordinating with our Haitian partners and our worldwide donors to address these problems. Some of the solutions are simple and inexpensive while others will require a long-term presence and commitment of resources.
Our outreach extended to the village of Paulin on the outskirts of Port-de-Paix. We delivered shoes, socks, clothing, soap, washcloths, toothbrushes, toothpaste, toys, and vegetable seeds to the people there. Our ongoing projects there will include the construction of a modern latrine, repair of an irrigation pump, and building a school for the many children there.
You can make a significant difference in the lives of Haitian children. We are working where others are not. There is no safety net for these children. We are changing that – one kid at a time. Join us in the fight against global poverty. Donate your time, talent, and treasure to Trellis Arch’s Haiti project. Thank you for your continued support.
