Long-term Changes in Port au Prince

A few of the children you
A few of the children you've helped!

Since our international volunteers left Haiti in December 2011, we’ve been delighted by the progress of our Haitian partners. Your generosity gave them the tools they needed to build a better tomorrow, and today they’re continuing to change lives.

Right now, hundreds of Haitian students are attending class in classrooms built by your donations, teachers are able to teach because their salaries are paid by your generosity, and your investments in health education mean that for more than 100 orphans, preventable illness is a thing of the past.

Most impressively, our English programme continues to thrive. In late January, the English students completed their first round of exams and the results speak for themselves. Of the 80 students who took the exam, 73 passed and will advance to the next level.

These results speak volumes about how well the Haitian teachers and administrators are doing, and we’re delighted with their accomplishments. The school is a great example of how the support of donors like you can increase local capacity and bring about long-term change.

As we continue to support our Haitian partners and prepare to respond to future disasters around the world, we hope we can count on you to join us as we work with survivors to build a better tomorrow.

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