Last week, Nemcova's Happy Hearts Fund (HHF) completed the construction of the kindergarten section of "Ecole Nouvelle Zoranje" with Fondation ProDev, its partner in Haiti.
"This school demonstrates that Haiti has the capacity supported by strategic partnerships to develop and to bring opportunities, innovation and quality education to its children. It is so exciting to see these bright children to be empowered," Nemcova told PopEater.
The model, founder and chairwoman of Happy Hearts has spent the last several days in Haiti meeting with school administrators and the country's newly elected leader, President Michel Martelly. The Happy Hearts school opening was the first official public function the president and first lady attended following the inauguration on May 14th.
"Happy Hearts Fund provides a sustained response to natural disasters and will replicate its school rebuilding initiative bringing it to scale for the children of Haiti," said Happy Hearts Fund Executive Director Phillip Caputo.
