Zanmi Fonkoze (Friends of Fonkoze)
Our community partnerships, called Zanmi Fonkoze (friends of Fonkoze), range in size and location, but have one thing in common– a passion for our work. We ask that anyone who wants to start a Zanmi group in your city or town make a commitment to raising a certain amount of support and interest for Fonkoze each year, which often includes hosting events to inform others of Fonkoze.
Some of our supporters’ past events have included a children’s play about Chemen Lavi Miyò, a barn party (complete with Leigh Carter in a chicken costume), and a reception and talk featuring two of our senior staff members from Haiti. We encourage our Zanmi groups to get creative and find an approach that fits with their group’s interests.
