Reflections on 2010

Dear Supporters,

In many regards, 2010 was an extremely difficult year for Haiti.  In January, an earthquake devastated Port au Prince, in the late summer a close brush with a hurricane, in the fall, a cholera epidemic.  It is hard to comprehend the resiliency of the Haitian citizens who continue to have perseverance through such challenges.  Thanks to your support, we offer hope to our peers in Haiti by supplying equal access to education through our Internet wiki project.  Since June you have helped us raise over $14,000 to purchase a classroom set of Classmate PC laptops, which have provided excellent learning opportunities for the students at Les Bons Samaritains School. Since the school has an enrollment of over 600 students, we continue to seek funding for additional laptops to give more access to this wonderful learning resource.  In addition, Internet service, technology staffing, and teacher training continue to require funding for sustainability of our program.  Your continued support is greatly appreciated!

In Palmyra, Pennsylvania, our high school students have been busy creating video blogs to promote our Palmyra-Haiti Wiki project through the help of a local credit union.  Please click the link below to access their latest video.

Our middle school students have been learning about effective web page / wiki design from a professional web page designer at Lebanon Valley College.  The students recently launched an improved wiki as a result of a web page design workshop.   Please click on the link below to access the new Palmyra-Haiti Wiki Project site.

Our humanitarianism also continues as we have raised enough money to feed over 6,000 meals for Haitians through The Annual Cookie Sale to Combat World Hunger.

Please help spread the word about our project, which is offering hope in the midst of Haiti’s great challenges. Together, we are making a difference!

All the best,

Jeff Remington

Project Director
