Sister Jeannette is a native of Haiti. For more than 10 years, she served as the Executive Director of the Notre Dame Family Education Center and its annex, the Basic Education Center in Les Cayes, Haiti.
“We saw a need to teach reading, writing, math and self-development skills to women and families as well as to create ways for the adults to earn an income to support their families. We developed a plan that became the foundation for the Notre Dame Family Education Center,” Sister Jeannette said
Both centers teach reading, writing, math and self-development skills and set up micro-businesses to help families earn an income. These businesses also help create a path forward so that these ministries can one day be self-supporting.
Sister Jeannette now lives in Ipswich, Mass.
