Jean Kedler Abelard
Founder & Executive Director
Kedler is our Founder and Executive Director. Kedler is the owner of an IT consulting company, KEFAPSystems. He is a computer engineer with more than 17 years of experience in the field. More importantly, Kedler is a great father to his son, which is why he cares so much for the children in Haiti and worldwide. Kedler grew up learning the importance of positively impacting people's lives; he experienced the impact himself. His story is a fascinating fusion of cultures, from attending school in rural Haiti, then moving to the United States to attend college and become a US citizen. Since then, he has made many trips to Haiti. His dream has always remained the same: positively influence his birth country and the world. "I believe in every individual's potential, and the only thing that stops them is not having the opportunity to reach their goal, which is why I want to support them," Kedler said.

Public Relations Coordinator
Bytchello is an author, educator, entrepreneur, certified trainer, and supervisor of children's services in Canada. After starting his career in humanitarian work in 2004, notably as a child rights coordinator for an international NGO in Haiti, he has been acting positively for the educational world since 2008 in Canada, and this with passion. He sees himself as a missionary, promoting the values (Love - Benevolence - Trust) and philanthropy (benevolence doubled with charity).
