Urgent Construction for the Rainy Season

Our education programme continues to grow. With our first 25 scholarship recipients in school, we’ve begun our monitoring and evaluation process. Project managers visit the school at least twice a month to check up on the children and ensure that any issues are addressed.

It’s a real pleasure to visit the school where these kids are attending. Just a few short weeks ago they spent their days idle in the street. Now they spend them in classes learning how to read and write.

We’re looking forward to identifying more children so that our scholarship programme can continue to grow, and we’re hoping that you’ll help us fund this growth.

We also recently built another transitional classroom. This project, which took place at Emes School in Port au Prince, went beyond simple classroom construction. Our team demolished and replaced unsafe walls, repaired damaged walls, and poured a concrete floor in the bathroom, improving sanitation. We are looking forward to completing our work at Emes School by building a drainage system on the property which will further improve sanitation.

Together, our work has provided a safe environment for the 20 children who are now in class there and provided space for more children to attend class in this high achieving, community school.

Our construction projects are becoming more and more pressing as the rainy season approaches. Unsafe, unstable roofs and structures are difficult in the dry season. They become deadly in the rainy season when flooding, high winds, and heavy rains become a reality.

Please help us build as many safe roofs as we can before the rains begin in late April by letting your friends know about our project and encouraging them to support us the way you did.

Thanks so much for all you’ve done, and we look forward to hearing from you should you have any questions or concerns. Feel free to email Media@EDVolunteers.org.
