On-going Growth in Haiti

Following Global Giving’s visit in January, our work in Haiti continues to grow. We’ve recently begun providing scholarships to children in our community who would otherwise be unable to attend school.

As education is the key to long-term recovery, we’ve coupled these scholarships with reconstruction and transitional classroom construction in high achieving schools. As the rainy season approaches, these reconstruction projects become even more essential. Unsafe roofs and walls are difficult in the dry season, but deadly in the rainy season when high winds and flooding affect all of Haiti.

We’ve also begun a new programme with our partners Medical Relief and Education International to address the urgent health needs in Haiti. This health education programme combines clinics with health education with the ultimate of giving Haitians the information they need to place their health firmly in their control.

We launched our health programme with work in several orphanages as well as a cholera and a disease prevention programme in the rural community of Fond de Negres.  

Combined with our on-going work in English education and community development, our reach in Haiti continues to expand, and it would have been impossible without your support. We hope you’ll continue to follow our work in Haiti and support us in any way you can.

Thanks so much for all you’ve done, and our warmest regards from Haiti.
