Wyclef Jean

In 2005, Grammy award-winning musician Wyclef Jean founded Yéle Haiti, a grassroots, non-political charitable organization focusing on emergency relief, employment, youth development and education, and tree-planting and agriculture in Haiti. In its first year of operation, the foundation provided scholarships to 3,600 children in Gonaïves, Haiti, after the devastation of Tropical Storm Jeanne. It continues to serve those affected by the 2010 earthquake.
