Summary

This project will help 200 children in rural Haiti access primary education and gain the literacy and numeracy they need to have a chance at success.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

The over 200 students (aged 4-17) at the Marion Primary School in Corail, Grand'Anse, Haiti take their classes in in a one arooma schoolhouse with one wall, a plastic sheet for a roof, no real chalkboards and inadequate desks and chairs. They have no running water and inadequate bathroom facilities. The six grades are crowded into the small space with little separation, leaving classes distracted by sun, rain and each other.

How will this project solve this problem?

Working in concert with local charities, we hope to provide for the reconstruction of the school and provide students and teachers with the equipment they need to undertake their lessons.

Potential Long Term Impact

The project will help to increase literacy, numeracy and sanitation in the community. This will give farmers better access to the advice they need to improve their yields and get a fair price for their produce.
