Located in Port-au-Prince, Haiti, Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School was recently recognized as one of the top five schools in its region. Over 600 students are enrolled in primary and secondary education that includes a hot meal everyday. This project funds key items to improve conditions at the school including new tables for classrooms, a computer lab and new playground equipment.
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
The children living near Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School have little or no opportunities for education. There are private schools in the region, but they are prohibitively expensive for the vast majority of families living there. This is why Mercy & Sharing's John Branchizio School is so important -- we provide education, hope and opportunity that these students otherwise would not have. Mercy & Sharing also provides a hot, nutritious meal everyday for every child enrolled.
How will this project solve this problem?
Mercy & Sharing needs your help improving conditions at John Branchizio School. We plan to purchase new tables for the classrooms, install a computer lab, improve security to protect equipment and supplies, and remove a building damaged in the 2010 earthquake.
