Samuel Cene is our first sponsored student to graduate college, receiving his engineering degree in December 2018.
Samuel is a leader is his community and is passionate about using his education and skills to serve his country and help everyone around him.
He is part of several social endeavors that are helping to develop his local community, including leading a local community based organization for three years that he helped create.
Samuel is the ideal student, dedicated to his studies, willing to persevere through hardship and difficulties, and is dedicated to supporting those around him.
At the 2018 Formal Dinner to honor our students, Samuel read a moving speech about what being a part of Clean Hands for Haiti has meant to him. At the time, he was still a student, working hard with two semesters left until reaching his engineering degree.
Clean Hands for Haiti helped me build my life, provided me with the possibility to complete my studies, when I was stuck and was on the verge of dropping out of school due to lack of funds. Today, because of the program, I am almost done with my engineering degree. Therefore, CLH is my life. I will always be grateful to CLH.
