Hurricane Matthew Response

Families Receiving Tin Roofing

The beginning of the school year 2016-2017 was off to a challenging start for our students and the staff at REBUILD globally.

On October 3-4, 2016, Hurricane Matthew slammed through Haiti with incredible force, destroying much of our southern peninsula. In particular, Les Cayes, Jeremie and Grand Goave were devastated – leaving homes destroyed and crops ruined. Many of our students’ families live in these areas, and as a result, our extended family at REBUILD globally was directly affected by this disaster.

We are very saddened to report that Kenold, one of students in 9th grade, lost his grandfather in the storm. Additionally, Lovely, Taina, Rebeka, Wenson, Roseberline, James, Betiana, Rose-Carmelle and Charlene all have family members who live in the provinces whose home were completely destroyed, leaving them homeless.

Thankfully, however, with the generous contributions of donors like you, we were able to assist the parents of our students through an assistance program, by purchasing tin roofing, and helping them to support their families by rebuilding their homes. Your support allowed for smiles and hope to return to their faces!

The parents and the students are so happy and grateful about this gift for their families, and their ability to start to rebuild. Again, we could not make such great difference and impact without all of you! In creole we say: "Men ampil, chay pa lou." With many hands, the load is lightened.

Success Stories from Haiti

Ilarie

The 2015-2016 school year was another great success at REBUILD globally.  We celebrated 97% of our students passing their final exams and either graduating high school, or moving onto the next school year.  In very exciting news and  for the first time in REBUILD history we have 5 students entering Univevrsity!  Within our midts are future doctors, lawyers and administrators.  IIarie is one of those entering University and she will also join the others with part time job training at the deux main design workshop  There she will earn extra income to allow her the ability to pay for any extra expenses that may arise.  

We are also very excited to have two new students enter into our Elev Program this year. Olguine is in 8th grade and Joseph is a Junior this year.  Stay tuned as we watch these two young men successfully complete their studies!

Our students are so excited this year, specially because of the new classes we are adding into our Elev program such as: computer class and technology class that wil allow them to access information outside of their school books and to research on the Internet to complete their home work.

Georgeson, is one of the boy in our program who has lived on the streets for most of his young life.  He has now become an exemple for the other street boys, he continues to testify how great the program is for him and how it has changed his life. Georgeson now shares ideas and knowledge to some of his friend and try to convince them to leave the street and go to school. He believes the biggest gift he could receive in his life is: “Education,” as this will help him to become independent and has a livelihood in the future, also helps others.

Two New Graduates at REBUILD globally!

Cindia

Time goes by so quickly! At REBUILD globally, we were so proud to celebrate the graduation of two students in our Education Program on June 17. Cindia and Ylarie graduated high school with top marks - an accomplishment that is difficult to achieve in Haiti.

In order to understand how tremendous this accomplishment is, let's look at the statistics:

-- 50% of children in Haiti do not attend school (World Bank 2013)

-- 30% of children who attend school do not make it to the third grade  (UNICEF 2008)

-- 60% of children who attend school will drop out before the sixth grade (UNICEF 2008)

-- 29% of people over the age of 25 in Haiti attended secondary school (USAID 2015)

Cindia and Ylarie defied the odds, and worked hard with our tutors and mentors to accomplish their goals, and become leaders in their community.  They are the future for Haiti and a model of success for our other students. Cindia would like to become a nurse to help others by serving their country: “I would never have been able to finish school this year without REBUILD globally and everyone who helps this organization run.” Cindia told our Education Program Manager upon her graduation.

To celebrate the fact that ALL of 30 students passed their classes and final exams this year, we traveled to the beach to enjoy our beautiful country and welcome summer vacation!  The new school year is just around the corner, however, and we have already begun the purchasing of books and uniforms for students. As Cindia and Ylarie graduated, they will both be offered employment opportunities at our workshop and training center in Port Au Prince to help supplement the costs of their higher education, and jump-start their career. 

 As they transition, we were able to welcome two new students to take their place in the program! Joseph, a junior, will join us in the Fall, as well as Altus, an eigth grader!  We can't wait to introduce you to these bright new students.  Stay tuned!

Finally, we would like to say thank you to all of the generous donors who make this program possible.  We are witnessing a literal transformation in our students lives.  Georgeson, a young man who has spent his entire childhood working on the streets to earn enough money to survive, came into our program last year with a hard attitude, and a tough perspective.  When he came to our office last week to drop off his report card, his entire disposition was changed. He was smiling brightly and walked in with his head held high.  When asked what this change represented he told our Education Program Manager, "Education changed my life completely. Now I feel that I have a place in the society and can contribute to the Development of Haiti." 

Thank you for the part you all play in making this transformation possible.  We appreciate you!!
