The Functional Literacy Ministry of Haiti is a local Christian nonprofit that works with the people in the mountain highland communities south of Port-au-Prince, the capital city of Haiti.
It’s an organization that, for more than 30 years, has enabled the Haitian people to address critical needs in nutrition, safe water, health, education and job training.
The organization hosted its annual Walk for Haiti in May, a 5K walk that financially benefits the ministry of FLM-Haiti. Registration was $25 per walker, and was held at the Highland Park Reservoir. The 5K walk equaled about three laps around the reservoir.
Ninety percent of the organization’s fundraising efforts support teacher salaries, food to feed the students, tuition relief, equipment, and medicine and supplies. The funding also supports the employment and development of Haitian physicians, teachers, and guesthouse staff.
Leon D. Pamphile, PhD, is the executive director of FLM-Haiti. Marie Rozette Pamphile is the associate executive director. Russell Bynum is the president.
