March 16, 2013Frank Virgintino, author of Free Cruising Guides, announced today the creation of an educational fund to offset tuition costs for students at Ile a Vache, Haiti who need assistance and make application.  The initial grant of $5,000.00 has been donated by Free Cruising Guides together with Marina ZarPar of Boca Chica, DR.

 

The first grant funds have been released to 16 students, 12 of whom live on Ile a Vache and attend primary school on the island and 4 who live on Ile a Vache and attend high school at Les Cayes, on the mainland.

 

The island of Ile a Vache has long been a safe and wonderful stop for cruising boats.  Frank pointed out that the fund seeks to give back to this island of Haiti which has done so much for the cruising community.

 

Cruisers and businesses who would like to donate to the fund may contact Frank Virgintino at fvirgintino@gmail.com
