When Indian River County resident John Engle made a 2-year commitment in Haiti to work with a small organization supporting education, he had no idea that he would end up staying for 20 years and dedicate his life to the Haitian people.
JE: I’m John Engle, director of Haiti Partners.
Engle co-founded the nonprofit in Vero Beach in 2009.
JE: Our major focus is schools. We specifically articulate our mission as helping Haitians change Haiti through education.
