Past Events

New Day gala

On October 21st, 2020, we launched the New Day Gala. Even amidst the pandemic, our network of partners and sponsors came together to support Bon Repos, Haiti.

This was Jou Nouvo’s first-ever virtual fundraising event. The evening was not only entertaining but one that made a lasting impression on attendees and the students and families of Bon Repos. Even during a pandemic, we surpassed our fundraising goals! Be sure to watch both videos to get the full impact of the event.

The objective of the New Day Gala was to raise funds in support of Jou Nouvo. This event helped us expand our lending and strategic partnerships to support community entrepreneurs, especially the young university graduates. We also expanded our staff and infrastructure to commence building a community center and meeting place in the heart of the Bon Repos.

See for yourself the impact we are making in Bon Repos and beyond.
