Schadrac, or Shad was born in the town of Sibert, Haiti, quite close to the current location of the HEART school. His father worked tirelessly throughout Shad’s childhood in the United States to earn enough money to move his wife and children to New York because they feared for their lives during the political turmoil during the 1990’s. His father was able to get the whole family into the United States, only to die shortly thereafter in a car accident. This left Shad with a strong resolve to do well in school, go to college, and ultimately return to Haiti to create sustainable change through education. He currently manages our team on the ground in Haiti.
