From 2015 to 2023, 43 high school seniors received over $80K in scholarship money allocated by GAHCCI.

Reflecting on the inception of the Georgia Haitian American Chamber of Commerce (GAHCCI) Foundation Scholarship Fund, formerly known as Pwochen Lidè, our members established this program out of a clear and pressing need: to ensure the continuity of leadership and the thriving future of the Haitian community in Georgia. Our scholarship initiative began in 2015 as a strategic response to the underrepresentation of Haitian youth in higher education and leadership roles within the community and beyond. The vision was straightforward yet profound: empower the next generation of Haitian leaders through education.

 

The mission statement of the scholarship fund echoes this sentiment, aiming to “cultivate leadership and academic excellence among Haitian-American students, providing them with the financial resources and community support necessary to pursue higher education and contribute meaningfully to society.” This mission is vital for the students, their families, and the entire Haitian community in Georgia. It underpins a broader vision where these young leaders return as trailblazers to their communities, equipped to uplift and transform, ensuring a sustainable and prosperous future for all. Through this scholarship, the GAHCCI extends its reach beyond business support to actively shaping the community’s future leaders, making it a beacon of hope and opportunity for many.
