The Foundation for Liberty and Knowledge

The Foundation for Knowledge and Liberty (FOKAL) was founded in 1995 in Haiti and since offered support programmes to the local population in the fields of education, development, and arts and culture, with the aim of building a more prosperous and peaceful society.

The organisation has been selected by the judges due to the wide range of programs it runs which serve the local communities and civil society organisations. Specifically, FOKAL plays a vital role in shaping the lives of the local youth and supporting hard-working communities at the grassroots level. The Foundation runs a wide range of programs and initiatives such as Martissant Park, Heritage, and Civic Education (Ajulih), among others.
