This project has been full of people and events that have inspired us. Our involvement in Haiti all began twelve years ago with the inspiration of a 10 year old girl named Julia. Julia heard about a school being built in Haiti and the great needs of the children there. When she invited her friends to her birthday party that year, Julia asked that they bring a donation for the Haitian School instead of a gift for herself. Doctor Rodrigue Mortel, the founder of the Good Samaritan School, heard about Julia and invited her to come to Haiti to see the school she and her friends were helping with their generosity. Julia’s mother, who traveled with her to Haiti, had her friends over one day to hear about the beauty of the Haitian people, the newly built school and the great many challenges the Haitian people face. It was at that gathering where we first heard about the school and began supporting it.
Simple small acts of generosity can have a profound effect, often times in ways we will never fully comprehend. So we begin this new school year in gratitude for your support that has enabled the computer rooms at both the Good Samaritan School and the James Stine College to provide global connections and a new world of learning to the students there. Thank you!
