The Jonathan Vilma Foundation
New Orleans Saints defensive linebacker Jonathan Vilma established The Jonathan Vilma Foundation to support the building of a charter school in Haiti to educate students from kindergarten through high school. In 2010, a devastating 7.0 earthquake struck the region killing more than 230,000 people of which 40,000 were students and 1,000 were teachers. More than 50 schools were destroyed. Jonathan's parents immigrated from Haiti and family members remain in the country. Jonathan is deeply committed to assisting in the long-term rebuilding efforts.
