About CFFL

Centre de Formation Fritz Lafontant (CFFL)

A community vocational school in Corporant, Haiti, CFFL offers degrees in three main areas with the greatest application and demand in the area: agriculture, construction, and woodworking. Each course of study is multi-faceted and includes business practices and ethics as well as skills training.

Built in 2012, CFFL was founded to prepare a generation of young Haitians to lead their communities out of poverty through practical, hands-on experience in sustainable local agriculture and innovative building processes. CFFL also conducts outreach education programs to reach the wider community.

CFFL’s five core values are:

  • Science & Technology
  • Environment
  • Economy
  • Ethics
  • Social & Moral Responsibility

CFFL is uniquely positioned to make a difference:

  • 95% of CFFL instructors are Haitian
  • Partner Universities contribute to curriculum development and research
  • Classes are taught in Haitian Kreyol, French, and English
  • Graduates are connected with or create opportunities to work in their communities

The annual tuition fee to attend CFFL is $2,500 per student. Due to the limited economic capacity of our students, we aim to cover 60% of this cost from our endowment. Each student covers the remaining $1000, though we also offer full scholarships for those who meet certain criteria.
