Review for The Siloe Project dba Pazapa, San Anselmo, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

My wife Nancy and I first went to PAZAPA in Jacmel, Haiti, in 1997 when our son Jonathan E. Scholes worked there as a Peace Corps Volunteer for two years. The PAZAPA founders wisely recognized that the health and development of a child with disabilities is closely related to the family's economic status. Therefore Jonathan helped set up a mango-drying business for the mothers of children with disabilities. To this day PAZAPA continues to work with the families of its students by providing them small business loans which have had nearly a 100 % repayment success rate.

Role:  Board Member & As the Co-President of the USA Board of PAZAPA I have worked to sustain the operation of its school and to reopen and rebuild the school following the Jan. 2010 earthquake. .
