President and CEO
Jude is the product of the exceptional education that the School of Dominique Savio, Petion-Ville in Haiti offers. At a young age, he quickly learned the Salesians’ motto to “be Good Christian and Honest Citizens”, to always give, and to share while caring for others. Jude never forgot his past as a student of this reputable institution. Thus, his desire to continue the legacy of the Salesians in Haiti has never faded.
Being called upon to unite a group of past pupils to form a non-profit association to help the youths in Haiti was an honor to him. It was with pride that he connected with many friends to achieve this endeavor. He worked relentlessly to organize a team of devoted past pupils to participate in this philanthropic effort. As the current president of ACCODOSAH, Jude proudly leads the members of the association to create opportunities for children of lesser means to have access to basic Salesian education. The main goal of the association is to make an IMPACT that will alter not only the youths in Haiti but also their community.
We firmly believe that when diverse groups of people bring resources together in the spirit of true cooperation, transformative ideas will emerge to drive life-changing action. All human beings are part of the whole and must be engaged in the development of others.
