SVC Selected


Dina is from Bainet, Haiti. She comes from an agricultural family of ten kids, which her parents worked hard to raise well and educate. When she was nine years old, she went to Port-au-Prince to study. In 2008, she applied for and received a SEED (Scholarship for the Education Economic Development) scholarship. Unfortunately, after the earthquake in 2010, some Haitian students did not fulfill their obligations and failed to return to Haiti. Many scholarships were rescinded, including Dina’s. The next year, she reapplied and was accepted to study business management at Northcentral Technical College in Wisconsin, where she received her associate’s degree in 2013. While in college, she served as Vice President of the Business Professionals of America and Secretary of Intervarsity Christian Fellowship and was inducted to Phi Theta Kappa. She developed a commitment to action called, “Cassava Factory – Hope for the Haitians Living in Bainet,” to create job opportunities and to encourage national production in her country. She is grateful to God and the Resolution Project for believing this venture can change the lives of the people living in Bainet.

She works with the Agape Church in Wisconsin as an administrative assistant and also provides direction for the children’s ministry.
