In our program's inaugural year, we built two schools on behalf of our clients, one in Haiti and one in Peru, and have committed to building a third this year. While we believe it is important for social giving, it is also a differentiating characteristic and part of our strategy to build our reputation, strengthen our franchise and make Three Ocean a unique firm in the industry. The response from both clients and employees has been extremely positive.

Ecole Foyer des Archanges

Ecole Foyer des Archanges is a prekindergarten through 6th grade school in Cité Soleil, one of the largest and most impoverished slums in Haiti. It was severely damaged during the earthquake of January 2010. The 200 children who lost their school were studying in tents for nearly two years. The school was re-opened in October 2012 with ten, beautiful classrooms and a play area for children.
