10 Years of the Steve Sinnott Foundation!

On September 18th 2019 we celebrated 10 Years of the Steve Sinnott Foundation at an event in London. Here are some of the highlights! Thank you all for supporting access to learning worldwide over the last 10 years!


Film Screening in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, supported by the Steve Sinnott Foundation.

This September Chief Exec Ann Beatty has been in Port-au-Prince in Haiti for a film screening of ‘Marstra’ at BANJ, the Steve Sinnott Foundation. The film was translated into Haitian Kreyol for International Literacy Day, in partnership with The Literacy Project, and was accompanied by 13 sessions debating the importance of early years literacy learning in Kreyol.

The film was presented in person by Consuelo Doris Diaz, the current President of the Cuban Association of Haitian Descendants.

Ann and Consuelo also met with Caroline Rowett, the British Ambassador to Haiti, and participated in more debates and screenings at the Felicite Foundation, attended by 25 teachers and other development professionals who are doing amazing work to develop access to quality education in Haiti. And also Maurice Communication, attended by 65 people.

To talk about the projects, Ann, Billy Jean, Consuelo and others went on The Morning Show Radio show on Chokarella in Haiti! You can see some of the live broadcast here:
